Splinter - The ESPAS e-infrastructure: Coordinated Data Analysis Workshop

A. Belehaki, M. Hapgood
Tuesday 18th, 17:30 - 19:00

The aim of ESPAS Research Infrastructure is to facilitate the access to data from the near-Earth space environment (http://www.espas-fp7.eu). The ESPAS project has entered its third year of activities, with a set of tools to support standards and interoperability, deployed in the main platform and the data nodes. Main elements are the data model, which is compatible with all heterogeneous data formats, the XML schemas for metadata exchange format, the domain-specific ontology, the wrapper installed at the data nodes to support metadata harvesting from the main platform, the main platform built on the D-NET framework and the GUI with its designed workflows. The current release provides access to the majority of datasets registered in ESPAS from ground based Digisondes and ionosondes, magnetometers, GNSS receivers, Fabry Perot Interferometers, SUPERDARN, ISRs, and from space missions CHAMP, IMAGE/RPI, ACE, SOHO, PROBA2, NOAA/POES, DEMETER, Cluster, ISIS/Alouette, MAGION3, among others. To enhance its functionalities, ESPAS provides datasets derived from a number of models such us IRI-2012, EDAM, CMAT2.

This splinter session aims at exploring ESPAS capabilities based on the implementation of specific science cases which require identification of events, analysis of multi-instrument and multi-point data, model-observation comparison, statistical analysis, and data visualization, among others. This splinter is open to the ESWW participants who are welcome to test the ESPAS functionalities during the session and report back on their experience.
