Oral history interviews. Computer-mediated collaborations: Upper Atmosphere Research Collaboratory, 1996-1997.
Interviews include: Robert Clauer (University of Michigan), Tom Finholt (University of Michigan), John Kelly (Stanford Research Institute), and Gary Olson (University of Michigan.
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. Phase III focused on four disciplinary areas of ground-based astronomy, materials science, heavy-ion physics, and medical physics, and a category named computer-mediated collaborations. A computer-mediated collaboration, the Upper Atmosphere Research Collaboratory (UARC), was a collaboration of the University of Michigan, the Stanford Research Institute, Lockheed Palo Alto (not Lockheed-Martin), the University of Maryland, the Danish Meteorological Institute to develop software that enables scientists to use remote instruments at the Sonderstrom facility in Greenland, coordinate their use of the remote instruments, and to merge individual data sets. Funding from NSF's computer science and atmospheric science directorates. Funding began in 1992 and the collaboration was still in operation at the time of interviewing.
