ENES Data Space Service


Target audience

  • Scientific communities and end users


  • Overview about the ENES Data Space (Fabrizio Antonio, 15 min)

  • Introduction to Synda and its capabilities (Atef Ben Nasser, 10 min)

  • Demo/tutorial (Fabrizio Antonio, 20 min)

  • Q&A (15 min)


The ENES Data Space delivers an open, scalable and cloud-enabled data science environment for climate data analysis on top of the EOSC Compute Platform. It provides access to a set of specific CMIP variable-centric collections to support meteorological and industrial researchers in realistic climate model analysis experiments. Data is downloaded and kept in sync with the ESGF federated data archive.

This webinar will provide a general overview of the ENES Data Space service and its main features. In addition, the Synda command line tool used to explore, download and place files within the adequat directories from the ESGF archive will be introduced.

Moreover, the webinar will include a tutorial on how to join the ENES Data Space service and a short demo for the participants to get started with the data analysis and visualization features.
