As the coldest, driest, windiest and fastest changing environment on Earth, Antarctica is a fascinating continent that still hides its secrets. For the last 60 years, scientists have explored and strived to better understand the past, present and future of the Antarctic Ice Sheet but also its geological structure.
Geological data supports the management of environmental risks from pollution in England’s water environments
Open access to geological data enables Environment Agency staff to develop an understanding of how water flows in the subsurface environment, helping to support their statutory function to protect England’s waters and associated environments from pollution risk.
Marine data is increasingly used to support the development of tools and policies which generate societal and economic benefits for the marine sector. The EDS provides users with a rich source of accessible marine data.
Reuse of data made available by the EDS has enabled researchers to build tools to better understand the impacts of climate change on a national scale.
Satellite technologies are an essential part of a modern society. The polar component of the EDS have developed workflows to ingest satellite data to support the production of disruption risk-indicators.
As datasets continue to grow in volume and variety, so does the requirement of our storage infrastructures. The EDS now shares storage capability across the individual data centres for large datasets.
A new NERC-funded digital research platform which enables users with differing skillsets and areas of expertise to work together in an open, transparent and repeatable way to rapidly analyse and visualise a variety of data resources.
