The consortium parties are Nordic geophysical observatories from Finland, Iceland, Denmark, Greenland, Norway and Sweden. Partner organizations operate National Research Infrastructures (NRI) that deliver data to EPOS Thematic Core Services (TCS) and/or are partners in TCS consortiums.
Nordic EPOS Data Hub aims to enhance and stimulate the ongoing active Nordic interactions related to Solid Earth RI in general and EPOS in particular. We share common Nordic perspectives and we believe that together we have unique competences, which can contribute to addressing global challenges in Norden and with Nordic data. We strive to develop expertise and tools designed to respond to challenges that are specific for the Nordic environment.
Nordic EPOS Data Hub has ten main objectives that intend to increase the awareness and the usage of Nordic EPOS data, data products, software and service, to increase the amount of Open Access data and cross-border usage of portable instruments and support the building of expertise in data and methods needed for safe and sustainable societies.
The Nodic EPOS Data hub has six main infrastructure tasks (I-VI) and one transversal task (VII) on communication and dissemination.
Training in usage of EPOS-RI data and services
Nordic data intergration and FAIRness
Nordic station management of seismological networks
Induced seismicity, safe society
Ash and gas monitoring
Communication and dissemination.
Activities within the tasks are e.g. workshops, tutorials, demos and training sessions (virtual and on-site) communication and dissemination of EPOS data and metadata at local, national and international workshops, meetings, and conferences. Many of the task are addressing several objectives of the hub.
Nordic EPOS activities are workshops, tutorials, demonstrations and actual and virtual training sessions.
Information on upcoming and past Nordic EPOS activities can be found from here.
In addition, Nordic EPOS activities are advertised via EPOS and national RI websites and also communicated and disseminated in public lectures, seminars and short articles in expert journals. Most activities take place at or back-to-back with local, national and international conferences, meetings, workshops or seminar series.
The Nordic EPOS Hub is a consortium of geophysical institutions from Nordic universities and surveys that are members of the national EPOS consortia. The partner institutions operate national RIs that deliver data to EPOS TCSs and/or are partners in TCS consortiums.
The Nordic EPOS Hub consortium comprises the Universities of Helsinki (UH), Bergen (UiB), Uppsala (UU), Oulu (UOULU) and Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO).
