For the first time, air pollution from individual cities and built-up areas can be detected from space. The European Sentinel-5 Precursor Earth observation satellite sends ultra precise measurement data to ground stations in Norway and Canada. R&E networks forward the data to processing facilities, thus contributing to meeting near-real-time requirements.
The research field of proteomics contributes to important new medical insights, producing vast amounts of data along the way. To convert these massive amounts of proteomics data into knowledge requires dedicated computing and storage capacity.
As cyber attacks increase steadily in frequency and scale, the importance of defending ones own network against attackers increases as well. That is why many R&E networks have a Computer Emergency Response Team, CERT, to handle security incidents.
To study the strategies animals use to navigate the world around them, researchers analyse the behaviour of roundworms to create a model system. The project faced a number of data challenges that threatened to hold the team back from their scientific goal.
Wonder what a Research & Education network is all about? The bright people at Norwegien R&E network Uninett have produced a marvelous little video explaining the basics of it all - in just 78 seconds. Take a look and get enlightened!
