The Copernicus project is Europe’s eyes on the world. 

This world-leading project provides scientists with the

data they need to monitor climate change, pollution

emission, crop growth, marine traffic, land use and urban

development. Discover the reasons why earth observation,

and Copernicus in particular, is vital to science today; and the ways in which the data can be accessed and how GÉANT and the NREN community is helping to contribute to this cutting-edge field and cornerstone EU project.

Presenter: Javier Quinteros  (GFZ)



Data management and service provisioning at
seismological data centres has evolved in the
past decade, as the focus has shifted from the
main challenge of acquiring high-quality seismic data in standard formats towards enhancing standard services to enable users in dealing with federated and big data challenges. Nowadays, the scientific community needs access to as much data as possible in the easiest possible way. In particular at GEOFON, a big part of our efforts of the last years was focused on building a federation, which provides a uniform interface across the different data centres. This is the spirit behind the European Integrated Data Archive (EIDA), the distributed data centre for ORFEUS (the European infrastructure for seismic waveform data in the European Plate Observing System, EPOS). Some of the challenges related to this federated approach have already been identified by other communities. Namely, the enormous growth of data and the globalisation and enlargement of the scientific community to new actors (e.g. citizen science).
We will show in our presentation how local institutions / partners can benefit from our products and training initiatives.
