Data Analysis and Sharing with the ENES Climate Analytics Service (ECAS)

The ENES Climate Analytics Service (ECAS) is a new service from the EOSC-hub project. It enables scientific end-users to perform data analysis experiments on large volumes of climate data, by exploiting a PID-enabled, server-side, and parallel approach. It aims at providing a paradigm shift for the ENES community with a strong focus on data intensive analysis, provenance management, and server-side approaches as opposed to the current ones mostly client-based, sequential and with limited/missing end-to-end analytics workflow/provenance capabilities. Furthermore, the integrated data analytics service enables basic data provenance tracking by establishing PID support through the whole chain, and thereby improving reusability, traceability, and reproducibility.

The objective of the tutorial is to present ECAS and its processing and data management capabilities for potential future users. Attendees will learn about the ECAS software stack (Jupyter, Ophidia and others) and how to use the different integrated software packages. Furthermore, besides the processing capabilities, the tutorial also cover data/workflow sharing with other researchers or with broader community experts. This is enabled through integrated Cloud-based services like B2DROP and B2SHARE.

The tutorial will be divided into a teaching as well as a practical hands-on training part and includes:
  1. presentation(s) on the theoretical and technical background of ECAS. This covers the data cube concept and its operations (e.g.: subset extraction, reduction, aggregation). Furthermore, we provide an introduction to the Ophidia framework, which is the components of ECAS for processing multidimensional data
  2. tutorials and training materials with hands of Jupyter notebooks. Participants will have the opportunity to dive into the ECAS software stack and learn how to manipulate multidimensional data through real world use cases from the climate domain.
ECAS is hosted on two sites: at DKRZ and at CMCC. Only a prior registration is required to use the service.
