EOSC IN PRACTICE STORY: Supporting data findability, reliability and replicability in Earth, Meteorology and Climate science domains


EOSC Future has released a new series of use cases to show the value of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) for research.  

The cases are named “EOSC in practice stories” and highlight how EOSC resources (i.e. tools or services) already existing or under development have provided practical support to researchers in their daily work. The stories also demonstrate the benefits of EOSC for a broad range of actors, often across multiple research domains.


EOSC in Practice with EOSC SYNERGY

The fourth EOSC in practice story targets three main types of users: (1) researchers using the uploaded data models for their own research, (2) national and international meteorological agencies, disseminating forecasts to their users, (3) policymakers, providing official data to governments and international organisations to support the decision made by the governments.


Dust observation and forecasts services on EOSC

The dust observations and forecasts services described in this story are  offered within the context of EOSC-synergy and provided by the WMO Barcelona Dust Regional Centre. The centre was created in 2007 by the formal agreement of two Spanish institutions: the Meteorological State Agency of Spain (AEMET) and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). The new services EOSC-based are still in their early stages, but the number of users, generic, in research, and public policy fields is already increasing. In particular, the WMO Barcelona Dust Regional Centre, allows to simulate, thanks to numerical models, the forecast of dust and sand storms in Europe, North Africa and Middle East.

The Barcelona Dust Regional Centre services are already available on EOSC Marketplace! Access them here
