Implementing Data Citation on the Earth Observation Data Centre for Water Resource Monitoring (EODC)

Adopting the RDA Data Citation Recommendations on an openEO. The Earth Observation Data Centre for Water Resource Monitoring (EODC) located in Austria works with high-performance computing services and large amounts of data on a daily basis. Since 2017, it has been part of the consortium implementing the open Earth Observation (openEO) standard, which aims  to standardize communication between EO scientists and data and service providers. It allows scientists to write code one time only and use it on different backend providers, but has the downfall of being not transparent. Adding data citation to the standardized process enables insights into what specific data was used in EO workflows.

Dynamic Data Citation for frequently modifying High Resolution Climate Data

The Climate Change Centre Austria (CCCA) Data Centre expected a comprehensive project outcome of completely new simulated High Resolution Climate Scenarios for Austria in the time range from 1965 till 2100 on a daily basis. For consumption,  13 model runs, 5 meteorological parameters like temperature, 3 emission scenarios, over 1600 NetCDF files with an average size of 13 GB were calculated. How could we implement proper data management processes on such data packages? The idea of using the RDA Recommendation on Data Citation of Evolving Data as a pilot “NetCDF Pilot Implementation of Climate Scenarios” came out.   

 


This adoption story was brought forward by the RDA Europe 4.0 Austrian National Node.
