The ENES Climate Analytics Service (ECAS) reduces the need for the user to orchestrate complex workflows, by taking advantage of the workflow capabilities to run very complex experiments and take the...
This pilot aims to “better simulate” climate change, at seasonal to decadal time scale and forecast air quality using both existing and locally developed models EC-Earth (global circulation model, GCM) and NMMB-BSC (air quality model). By “better simulate”, we mean making a better use of the huge amount of raw data generated by these models. That includes data transfer between the different research institutes using the data that are disseminated all over the world, but also curation, and data discovery on portals where different projects store their data.
PAIRQURS is the public data access component of the project LIFE+RESPIRA (www.liferespira.eu). A network of 50 portable air pollution sensor suites are carried by a team of volunteer cyclists during their daily commutes throughout the city of Pamplona, Spain. The sensor suites record at 5 Hz the levels of selected atmospheric pollutants (CO, NOx, airborne particles) as well as auxiliary data (T, HR) and GPS coordinates and transmit processed packets via GPRS messaging to a central database.
The Jülich Atmospheric Data Distribution Service (JADDS) aims at providing the regional air quality community world-wide with customized atmospheric boundary conditions of trace gas and aerosol concentrations from the Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service (CAMS).
This pilot focuses on facilitating long-term storage and sharing amongst a wide scientific user community of high-resolution climate model output data. It aims at building a repository serving the climate change impact modelling community, providing selected variables at high temporal and spatial resolution, with a focus on climate extremes and the hydrological cycle in areas with complex orography. Potential users include researchers studying the impacts of climate on ecosystems, floods, landslides, fires. The archive will contain high-resolution data from the PRACE project Climate SPHINX and will later be extended with simulations from the projects PRIMAVERA, CRESCENDO and HighResMIP.
Long-Term Ecosystem Research (LTER) is an essential component of worldwide efforts to better understand ecosystems. This comprises their structure, functions, and long-term response to environmental, societal and economic drivers. LTER contributes to the knowledge base informing policy and to the development of management options in response to the Grand Challenges under Global Change. LTER-Europe features LTSER Platforms, acting as test infrastructures for a new generation of ecosystem research across European environmental and socio-economic gradients.
ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) is a new European research infrastructure (RI) with the mission to enable research to understand the greenhouse gas (GHG) budgets and perturbations in Europe and adjacent regions. ICOS is based on the collection of high-quality observational data by measurement stations operated long-term (15+ years) as national networks in the RI member states.
