Nordic EPOS - A FAIR Nordic EPOS Data Hub

Project Details

Description

Nordic EPOS - A FAIR Nordic EPOS Data Hub – is a consortium of the Nordic geophysical observatories delivering on-line data to EPOS Thematic Core Services. Nordic EPOS consortium comprises the Universities of Helsinki (UH), Bergen (UiB), Uppsala (UU), Oulu (UOULU) and Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO).
The hub’s main objectives are to: a) increase awareness and usage of multi-disciplinary Nordic EPOS data, data products, software and service for scientific and societal problem solving, b) increase the amount of, and access to, Nordic FAIR data, and c) support data management of new data types and scientific expertise needed for safe and sustainable societies in Nordic countries and especially in the Arctic region. To reach the objectives, the Nordic EPOS is organized into six main infrastructure TASKs I-VI and one transversal TASK VII on communication and dissemination. The TASKS are: I - Training in usage of EPOS-RI data and services; II - Nordic data intergration and FAIRness; III - Nordic station management of seismological networks, IV - Induced seismicity, safe society; V - Ash and gas monitoring; VI- Geomagnetic hazards; VII - Communication and dissemination. Each of the main partners is responsible for one or several TASKs. The activities are workshops, tutorials, demos and actual and virtual training sessions. The information will be disseminated using EPOS, Nordic EPOS and NRI websites, public lectures, seminars and short articles in expert journals. Most activities take place at or back-to-back with local, national and international conferences, meetings, workshops or seminar series.
