The European network for observing our changing planet (ERA-PLANET)

Start date: Feb 1, 2016, End date: Jan 31, 2021,

In the last decade a significant number of projects and programmes in different domains of environmental monitoring and Earth observation have generated a substantial amount of data and knowledge on different aspects related to environmental quality and sustainability. Big data generated by in-situ or satellite platforms are being collected and archived with a plethora of systems and instruments m ...

Terrestrial and marine ecosystems provide essential services to human societies. Anthropogenic pressures, however, cause serious threat to ecosystems, leading to habitat degradation, increased risk of collapse and loss of ecosystem services. Knowledge-based conservation, management and restoration policies are needed to improve ecosystem benefits in face of increasing pressures. ECOPOTENTIAL makes ...

Physics of Impact Cratering Collapse (IMPACT)

Start date: Dec 15, 2016, End date: Dec 14, 2018,

This research project will study the formation of large meteorite impact craters, characterized by central peaks or rings, flat floors and terraced walls. The complex morphology results from the gravity driven collapse of a much deeper and narrower transient cavity. Standard material models fail to explain such a collapse and specific temporary weakening mechanisms have been proposed. The most suc ...

EU BON: Building the European Biodiversity Observation Network (EU BON)

Start date: Dec 1, 2012, End date: May 31, 2017,

Sustainable governance of our biological resources requires reliable scientific knowledge that meets the needs of society. Current biodiversity observation systems and environmental datasets are unbalanced in coverage and not integrated, limiting integrative analyses and implementation of environmental policies.EU BON presents an innovative approach towards integration of biodiversity information ...

Virtual Biodiversity Research and Access Network for Taxonomy (ViBRANT)

Start date: Dec 1, 2010, End date: Nov 30, 2013,

Biodiversity science brings information science and technologies to bear on the data and information generated by the study of organisms, their genes, and their interactions. ViBRANT will help focus the collective output of biodiversity science, making it more transparent, accountable, and accessible. Mobilising these data will address global environmental challenges, contribute to sustainable dev ...
