 Correspondence with Barry Barish, who consulted with Rainer Weiss and Kip Thorne.
The George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) will be a geographically distributed national network of shared experimental earthquake engineering research equipment sites linked by a high-performance Internet system; it will consist of three major components:
Next-generation earthquake engineering research equipment (such as shake tables, a tsunami wave basin, geotechnical centrifuges, large-scale laboratory facilities, and mobile and permanently installed field equipment) distributed around the country at 15 universities.
NEESgrid, a high-performance network that will connect the remote sites and enable remote equipment operation and experimental viewing,
