Microsoft Research’s eScience Group is focused on researching ways that information technology (IT) can help solve scientific problems. Dr. Catharine van Ingen, a Partner Architect in Microsoft Research’s eScience Group, talks in this video about how she and others in Microsoft Research have worked with scientists at the University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to address the computing needs in managing Northern California’s Russian River Valley watershed.
