Teratec Digital Forum 2020
Wednesday October 14, 2020

Workshop 01 - 09:00 to 10:30

Environment and satellite data:
from abundance of applications to the surge of structured solutions

Chaired by Laurent Boisnard, Deputy Head of Earth Observation, CNES and François Robida, BRGM

By 2020, the volume of Earth observation data collected in a single year by the Copernicus Sentinel satellite fleet will exceed all high-resolution imagery data collected over the last 30 years in Europe. This unification of data is set to accelerate further with arrival of new private constellations, combined with the wide variety of sensors and measured variables (multi-spectral optical/radar imagery, atmospheric sounding, altimetry), is the source of a powerful movement towards HPC, HPDA, Cloud Computing and Big Data technologies needed to absorb, store and process such data, as well as to use and enhance them. Added to this phenomenon is the strong emergence of AI (Machine Learning/Deep Learning) in the geosciences, taking the capacity or potential for large-scale extraction of information to a very high level.

The workshop will be an opportunity to present the richness of the field, through deliberately varied and illustrating thematic applications: ocean meteorology, coastal dynamics, land occupation and precision agriculture, urban growth..., with a certain number of ongoing developments, involving public and private actors, be it for data access infrastructure projects based on hybrid or interoperable architectures, services for the production of targeted analyses, or demonstrative cases of virtual laboratories (science test beds or virtual research environments) allowing the testing of models or algorithms on intensive computing infrastructures.

National and European structuring initiatives for data access will be at the heart of this workshop, in particular the Data Terra Research Infrastructure and the DIAS Wekeo Copernicus.
