High resolution satellite data together with the predictive capabilities offered by simulation software such as Delft3D FM, plays an important role in monitoring and predicting the Earth System. As the satellite data volume grows, so does the number of scientists involved in Earth Observation research. Challenges for researchers include accessing appropriate computational resources to process the huge amounts of Earth Observation data whilst making these data easily accessible. A key consideration is how to ensure that the infrastructure access remains low-threshold and scales well with the volume of available data. Is it better to use in-house infrastructure, or can we rely on the continuity of external platforms?
The Horizon 2020 project C-SCALE (Copernicus - eoSC AnaLytics Engine), launched this year, connects Copernicus data with Dutch and European Infrastructure services to better facilitate Earth Observation research.
In this seminar we explain what C-SCALE does and how research groups can participate via a new C-SCALE call. In addition, the participating C-SCALE partners will talk about their research and we will conclude with a keynote on international developments in the field of Earth Observation.
You can register for this seminar via the SURF website: https://www.surf.nl/en/agenda/seminar-enabling-copernicus-big-data-analytics-through-european-open-science-cloud.
We look forward to meeting you!
This seminar is organized by SURF, in collaboration with the Netherlands Space Office (NSO), Deltares, and Wageningen University and Research.
