Abstract : Our long term goal is to develop online collaboration environments that support cooperative operation of complex environmental field programs by distributed interdisciplinary teams. The need for such collaborative environments is growing. Modern field experiments are challenging to manage, in part because new autonomous and unmanned platforms increase both the complexity and the number of options available to participants. Consequently, managing a field program demands a diverse project team. Traditionally, the tight cooperation of the team is enabled by collocating participants for the duration of the experiment. Our work focuses on developing a collaboration environment that would allow a team to manage a field program collectively, without leaving their home institutions.
