The ocean is a defining feature of our planet: shaping coastlines, regulating climate, sustaining biodiversity and human life. Collecting reliable ocean data is fundamental for understanding the marine realm, preserving its precious life and managing its resources sustainably.

Blue-Cloud is a major initiative seeking to add new dimensions to the existing European marine data landscape, by empowering researchers with cloud computing resources, analytical tools and seamless access to this wealth of data, data products and services.

The Blue-Cloud consortium has produced a new video to introduce the infrastructures involved in this journey, as well as the core services to foster Open Science in the marine domain, in support of a sustainable blue economy. Watch it now!

  • The Blue-Cloud Data Discovery and Access Service makes it easy to oversee and retrieve a large variety of data and data products from leading EU data infrastructures.
  • The dedicated Virtual Labs deployed in the Blue-Cloud Virtual Research Environment provide users with access to multidisciplinary data, analytical algorithms, and considerable cloud computing resources.
