Velo is a reusable, domain-independent knowledge-management infrastructure for modeling and simulation. Velo leverages, integrates, and extends Web-based open source collaborative and data-management technologies to create a scalable and flexible core platform tailored to specific scientific domains. As the examples here describe, Velo has been used in both the carbon sequestration and climate modeling domains.
