ACTRIS-2 addresses the scope of integrating state-of-the-art European ground-based stations for long term observations of aerosols, clouds and short lived gases capitalizing work of FP7-ACTRIS. ACTRIS-2 aims to achieve the construction of auser-oriented RI, unique in the EU-RI landscape. ACTRIS-2 provides 4-D integrated high-quality data from near-surface to high altitude...

The main objective of this project (MDRAF) was to describe the 3D structure of Mediterranean desert dust outbreaks and study their effects on radiation and atmospheric dynamics by means of numerical modeling (NMMB/BSC Chemical Transport model-NMMB/BSC-CTM). Moreover, the meteorological feedbacks and the forecasting accuracy of NMMB/BSCCTM when dust effects are considered were...

Adapting Service lifeCycle towards EfficienT (ASCETiC) was focused on providing novel methods and tools to support software developers aiming to optimise energy efficiency and minimise the carbon footprint resulting from designing, developing, deploying, and running software in Clouds. At the same time, quality of service, experience and perception was taken into account, so...

Climate change is for a large part governed by atmospheric processes, in particular the interaction between radiation and atmospheric components (e.g. aerosols, clouds, greenhouse and trace gases). Some of these components are also those with adverse health effects influencing air quality.

Strengthening the ground-based component of the Earth Observing...

Interoperability, which brings major benefits for enterprise and science, is key for the pervasive adoption of grids & clouds. Interoperability between existing grids and clouds was of primary importance for the European Union at the time of this project. Many of the policy issues required to achieve interoperability with DCIs across the world are already being explored...

With the challenges of service and infrastructure providers as the point of departure, OPTIMIS focused on open, scalable and dependable service platforms and architectures that allowed flexible and dynamic provision of advanced services. The OPTIMIS innovations can be summarized as a combination of technologies to create a dependable ecosystem of providers and consumers that...
