The European Plate Observing System (EPOS) is a long-term infrastructure project to facilitate integrated use of data, data products, and facilities from distributed research infrastructures for solid Earth science in Europe. EPOS-Norway is the Norwegian part of the project. CMR is leading the e-infrastructure work package in EPOS-N.

The EPOS-Norway project has four work packages. CMR is responsible for one of these, where the goal is to establish a Norwegian e-infrastructure to integrate data from the seismological and geodetic networks, as well as data from geological and geophysical data repositories. This work will comprise data integration, development of a web portal and of visualization and processing tools. In another work package, the monitoring capacity especially in the arctic area will be strengthened through purchase and installation of new seismological and geodetic instruments in Nordland, on Svalbard, Jan Mayen and Bjørnøya.

The partners in the EPOS Norway project:

  • University of Bergen - Department of Earth Science
  • Norwegian Seismic Array (NORSAR)
  • Norwegian Mapping Authority
  • Norwegian Geological Survey (NGU),
  • University of Oslo  - Department of Geosciences
  • CMR

CMR’s has developed the Enlighten-web software, which facilitates interactive visual analysis of large multidimensional data sets, and supports interactive mapping of millions of points. Enlighten-web will be an important component in the EPOS-N e-infrastructure. As part of the project, Enlighten-web is adapted for Solid Earth Sciences data. The image shows an example of visualization of seismic events together with other geological data (Moho depths are from "Maystrenko et al, 2017 http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/2016JB013443/abstract", WMS layers from NPD and NGU, seismic events data provided by UiB).
