EPOS Thematic Core Service Anthropogenic Hazards Workshop on EPISODES Platform

This workshop is a side event of the "Polish Open Science Conference 2024  - data in the service of science and society" in Cracow, Poland. 

This in on-site workshop is free of charge and you can apply for the workshop here! (Registration for the Polish Open Science Conference 2024 is not necessary.)

The same workshop with the same program will be held twice. Once on Thursday afternoon and a second run on Friday morning (10 participants each day). For all participants (Thursday and Friday) a social dinner is planned.

11.04.2024 - 15:30-19:30 CET Time

12.04.2024 - 10:00-14:00 CET Time

The participant selection process will follow the Geo-INQUIRE rules. Successful applicants will be informed by March, 20. The registration will be open from 19.02. until 17.03.

EPISODES Platform (episodesplatform.euis a digital tool (virtual laboratory) which provides open access to the integrated research infrastructures of EPOS TCS AH - episodes (datasets), applications (software), workspace, HPC, collaboration functionalities and document repository. EPISODES Platform gives users the possibility to: analyze anthropogenic seismicity and related hazards, assess the potential impact of geo-resources exploitation, use educational resources on anthropogenic hazard.

Scope: The workshop is intended for geo-i goals (increase awareness and usage of the EPISODES platform that is one of the geo-i services). The workshop will include: the introduction and description of the concept of the EPISODES platform, the description of the episode and data it includes, the presentation of the basic functions of the Platform: episode viewing and data visualization. Training providers will explain the Workspace and basic file operations, including data filtering. They will also introduce applications available on the EPISODES platform. The practical part of the workshop will include: Exercise 1: Filtering the catalog of seismic phenomena, Exercise 2: Seismogram peaking and other seismic signal processing methods: localization, spectral analysis and calculation of focal mechanisms,  Exercise 3: Determining seismic hazard parameters. At the end of the workshop participants will be able to ask for individual consultations with workshop leaders.

The learning goals: Getting familiar and readiness for practical use of the EPISODES platform as a digital tool that provides access to integrated episodes, i.e. data sets describing the seismic process induced or triggered by technological activities related to the exploration and exploitation of geo-resources, which in certain circumstances may threaten people, infrastructure and the natural environment.

EPOS Thematic Core Service and Geo-INQUIRE welcome anyone interested in learning about these concepts and tools, particularly early-career students, researchers, cross-disciplinary scientists at all career stages and catastroph modellers.

Geo-INQUIRE is funded by the European Commission under project number 101058518 within the HORIZON-INFRA-2021-SERV-01 call. We promote equality, diversity and inclusion under the advice of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Panel at all events organized as part of Geo-INQUIRE. In particular, we support registrations from women, early career scientists and people from widening countries.
