Climate Change Initiative at ESA Phi week

This week (12-16 November) ESA is live streaming Phi week, an event focusing on EO Open Science  and FutureEO - to review the latest developments in Open Science trends and kick-start innovative activities of the recently created Φ-department looking at FutureEO.

Members of CCI project teams and CCI datasets will feature during a week that will showcase world leadin EO science. 

The event is streamed live:

Sessions featuring CCI representatives are listed below:


13/11/2018 (James Cook room)

Earth System Data Lab (EDSL) -  Introduction and demonstrations


The EDSL offers a multi-variate, analysis ready data set of essential Earth System variables on a common grid and sharing a common data model. Most variables have been derived from Earth Observation products, e.g. the included Essential Climate Variables from ESA's CCI projects, but also model products have been considered where sensible.
