The NERIES EC project
NERIES is an Integrated Infrastructure Initiative (I3) project in the Sixth Framework Program (PF6) of the European Commission (EC), aiming at networking the European seismic networks, improving access to data, allowing access to specific seismic infrastructures. NERIES will lead the seismological infrastructures in building a key land-based segment of the GMES strategy and of the GEO 10-years implementation plan.
The Seismic Data Portal
One of the goals of NERIES is to design and develop a Web portal that acts as the uppermost layer of the infrastructure and provides rendering capabilities for the underlying sets of data.
Seismological institutes and organizations in European and Mediterranean, countries maintain large, geographically distributed data archives. By using the NERIES portal, the broader earth science community and the general public will be able to access earthquake data archives from a single interactive Web site, which will make useof the proper tools and services.
This scenario suggested a design approach based on the concept of an internet service oriented architecture (SOA) to establish a cyberinfrastructure for distributed and heterogeneous data streams and services. Recently this approach has being tested and implemented in Europe by the NERIES consortium and in the United States by the Earthscope consortium.
Here we provide all the latest news about the ongoing developents and future plans, with the main goal to establish a better and interactive communication among the commonuty of users and developers of the services offered through the NERIES Seismic Data Portal. Get our RSS
