Blue-Cloud Event
25 May 2022 02:00

After our successful Hackathon, which welcomed more than 30 teams from all around the world, we have launched a new webinar series to invite the entire marine research community to test the Blue-Cloud Virtual Labs.

The Marine Environmental Indicators Virtual Lab has a specific focus on data related to the marine environment, and it is led by the CMCC Foundation, in collaboration with IFREMERMercator Ocean International, the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI), and the University of Bergen.

The objectives of this demonstrator are to:

  •  Calculate and distribute online information and indicators on the environmental quality of the marine area.
  •  Obtain new added-value data applying big data analysis and machine learning methods on multi-source data sets.
  •  Enable users to perform online and on-the-fly operations, such as selecting a portion of a dataset, to perform statistical analysis or display the data.
