Description of Work
Earth Science (ES) applications cover various disciplines like seismology, atmospheric modelling, meteorological forecasting, flood forecasting and many others. Their presence in SA3 is currently centred in the implementation, deployment and maintenance of the EGDR service to provide access from the grid to resources within the Ground European Network for Earth Science Interoperations - Digital Repositories (GENESI-DR).
The ES HUC includes also researchers and scientists working in the climate change domain. In particular most of them actively participate in the Climate-G use case (see Section 5.5). This use case exploits the GRelC service (see Section 6.3) for distributed metadata management and the Climate-G portal as scientific gateway for this collaboration.
