Getting started with CREODIAS: How to use data volumes in the CloudFerro cloud?

We are continuing a new cycle of technical guides showing how to use CloudFerro cloud infrastructure. In the second article, we focus on using storage attached to virtual machines. PART 1: Creating and attaching volumes to virtual machines Linux In many cases, storage below 2TB would be sufficient: How to attach a volume less than […]

Getting started with CREODIAS: How to create a single VM in the CloudFerro cloud?

We are starting a new cycle of technical guides showing how to use CloudFerro  cloud infrastructure. These brief articles will compile the existing CREODIAS documentation technical notes in the way that you do not have to look for separate steps, but you have a set of connected manuals guiding you through the entire process to achieve expected results.

Heating season means pollution season

Bad air quality is one of the most serious threat to public health. Starting in autumn it becomes even more dangerous. Power consumption related to the heating system and road traffic is increasing, which leads to the increase of air pollution as well. What is more, lower temperatures are favorable conditions to keep air quality poor. This article presents how NO2 pollution changes from September to November in respect of temperature.

Timeliness and frequency of Sentinel products explained

Sentinel satellite missions, as part of the Copernicus programme, generate a wide portfolio of Earth Observation (EO) products which are generated with different frequency and timeliness. This is sometimes problematic for users to comprehend, thus this article provides an executive summary of observation scenarios of Sentinel satellite missions and timeliness.

Monitoring floods using Python and Sentinel-2 satellite imagery

In the last decade, the number of extreme natural phenomena has dramatically increased, causing damage to people all around the world. According to statistics, the number of natural catastrophes is correlated with global warming. The rise in air temperature not only leads to droughts and global fires but also triggers extreme storms and large-scale floods. […]

Monitoring droughts with Earth observation data

Back to the list According to the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) and the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), July 2023 has set a new record as the warmest month ever recorded globally, with an average temperature of 16.95 degrees Celsius. This temperature surge is attributed to massive heatwaves that affected Europe, Asia, […]

Traceability Service in Copernicus Data Space Ecosystem 

Traceability in satellite imagery is a fundamental concept that holds significant value and utility in various applications related to remote sensing and geospatial analysis. It refers to the ability to trace and track the source and processing history of satellite data, enabling users to understand the data's origin, quality, and reliability.

Running Science/EO application stack on Kubernetes in CloudFerro Cloud

Technologies based on containers have revolutionized the way that applications and workflows get deployed. They greatly reduce overheads linked to system configuration and promote use of micro-services for delivering clean, maintainable software.

Processing Sentinel-5P data using HARP and Python

Air quality is a crucial factor that impacts public health. Thanks to the satellite observations provided by TROPOMI onboard Senitnel-5P, hotspots of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) can be detected over the Earth every day. However, Sentinel-5P data needs to be prepared in a proper way to be useful for further analysis.
