European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2018
NCI staff are presenting several orals and posters at the EGU General Assembly, on 8-13 April 2018. This page provides links to the EGU abstract or information for each of the papers. PDF versions of all presentations and posters will be provided when they are finalised.

To be able to address growing global research challenges, more attention needs to be paid to harmonising multiple metadata/data standards to enable globally discoverable and accessible data, and to enhancing standards that make data programmatically actionable from robust data platforms. Knowing that data and the data access meets agreed standards means that the software community can focus on developing better algorithms, rather than creating a myriad of ways of accessing the same data type in multiple formats. It will also be easier to create workflows for those outside of the more specialised research community.
Currently there are established national efforts creating infrastructures that help connect solid Earth researchers. In the US these include the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) and the NSF’s EarthCube program, whilst in Australia there has been rapid advancements in supporting e-Infrastructure with investments such as AuScope and the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI). In Europe equivalent Horizon2020 projects are the Environmental Research Infrastructure Plus (ENVRIplus) and European Plate Observing System (EPOS). All are linking data, cyberinfrastructure and research developments across the academic and government sectors. Furthermore, more generic software from standards bodies now support many of the core requirements directly
