Digital twins help prepare for climate change

A new European initiative, Destination Earth, will use models of Earth sub-systems to assist authorities in preparing for extreme weather events related to climate change.

Simulating atoms for green energy

To help Australia transition to a lower emissions economy, researchers at Griffith University are using the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre and AARNet to explore new materials for more efficient green energy production.

Helping Asia and Oceania forecast and respond to climate disasters

Research networks and mirror sites for Himawari Real-time enable fast, reliable access to satellite imagery.

The power of earth observation

Digital Earth Africa is helping to build a better future for Africa and NRENs are playing a critical role in making this happen.

Accelerating New Zealand’s climate research

"The ability to share our data comes from the interconnection between the HPC and the network," says climate scientist Dr Jonny Williams.

KNMI shares weather data with fellow institutes via EUMETSAT

Weather satellites provide raw data for weather and climate models. EUMETSAT collects this raw data and distributes the processed data to weather institutes in its member countries, such as the Dutch KNMI. The institutes themselves contribute to the processing of the data. How does this work, how are the data distributed, and what is SURF's role?

Ice sheets may add 40 centimetres to sea levels

According to large cross-disciplinary project, the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica could together contribute about 40 centimetres of global sea level rise by year 2100.

Australian researchers collaborate to model effects of climate change on biodiversity

The Biodiversity Climate Change Virtual Lab (BCCVL) is one of the most accessed services via the Australian Access Federation (AAF), the national provider for federated single sign-on.

Greenland joins the global eduroam service

Both domestic researchers and the numerous visiting scientists will benefit from the availability of the global secure mobility service eduroam at The Greenland Institute of Natural Resources.

Understanding our planet through aurora

Scientists at the University of Calgary in Canada are spearheading aurora studies, that will help us model and predict space weather and understand the Earth’s magnetosphere.

This is how climate change will affect your community

Researchers at the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada have created a tool that’s able to visualize the changes about to take place at local communities.

Protecting the planet and its natural biodiversity

Brazil is a veritable treasure chest for research and development in biodiversity, climate, natural sciences and the environment. The nature of this type of research is driven by collaboration and high bandwidth network technologies.
