V-FOR-WaTer - Virtual research environment for water and terrestrial environmental research

Description and Aims

The project V-FOR-WaTer - Virtuelle Forschungsumgebung für die Wasser- und terrestrische Umweltforschung im Rahmen des Netzwerks Wasserforschung Baden-Württemberg - aims to create a virtual research environment (VRE), which will combine research data gathered in universities, research centres and from continuous monitoring of state offices in Baden-Württemberg into one comprehensive system. Facilitating access to all these different data sources in one system greatly reduces pre-processing time of complex analyses and enables the study of this extensive dataset towards the develop­ment a unified environmental system theory. The project is a co-operation between the SCC and the IWG.
