The development of a software package IGWResearch2 is considered in the paper. This package contains numerical models, hydrological data, data preparation tools, analysis tools and observations’ information related to internal waves in the World Ocean. The proposed approach is pursuing a goal to increase research efficiency by automation of routine operations repeatable with every numerical computation run. A new version of the software package was developed. The software structure was changed significantly and extended based on users’ requests. Communication modules for cloud computing and cloud storage were developed. This approach brings the possibility to transfer a computational process from workstations to a dedicated high-performance server. Cloud storage provides an ability for users to exchange numerical results and other data and store their data on the server. The graphical user interface was upgraded. A step-by-step configuration tool for the initialization of numeric models was added. This tool provides an ability to automatically correct user input based on weakly nonlinear theory estimations. New tools for the laboratory of modeling of natural and anthropogenic disasters of NNSTU n. a. R. E. Alekseev services access were developed. They extend the package with web-site based authorization and provide online access to the database of internal waves’ observations. These tools provide information about internal waves’ locations, their types, and dates on the interactive map. A numerical experiment using the software package is presented in the paper.
