The main objective of DeepESDL is provide access to analysis-ready data cubes with relevant Earth Science variables for the research community. Like in the preceding ESDL project, the focus remains on geophysical and biological parameters derived from Earth Observation or numerical models, rather than on low-level sensor data. Targeted users are particularly the researchers organised in ESA’s novel Science Cluster but there will also be an Announcement of Opportunity for external users and projects.
Users will be offered a full suite of services to facilitate data exploitation, share data and source code, and publish results. Special emphasize will be put on improving the support for machine learning and artificial intelligence approaches, which includes the preparation of AI-ready datasets, providing a programming environment with relevant libraries and packages, and the resources to execute processing pipelines.
