The European FAIR-EASE project aims at implementing distributed and integrated services for the observation and modeling of the Earth system, environment and biodiversity in collaboration with user communities, the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and research infrastructures.
FAIR-EASE will implement a data discovery and access service, building on existing pre-operational services, to provide users with an easy, FAIR tool for discovery and access to multidisciplinary environmental datasets. It also proposes the implementation of a FAIR-EASE Earth Analysis Lab with EOSC connectivity supporting, through web interfaces, predefined processing tools and on-demand data visualization services for remote analysis and processing of heterogeneous data. In this context, the FAIR-EASE project will develop a number of multidisciplinary use cases pilot projects to validate and demonstrate the capabilities of the FAIR-EASE service to support open science. These pilot projects are grouped into 3 themes: 1) Earth Dynamics and the Environment divided into 3 subgroups (Coastal Water Dynamics, Planning and Management of Critical Earth Areas, and Volcano Space Observation), 2) Environmental Biogeochemical Assets, and 3) Biodiversity Observation.
