EGI Check-in empowers EISCAT’s data exploration

EISCAT is a scientific organisation that operates radar antenna sites across Finland, Norway and Sweden, all north of the Arctic Circle. The EISCAT_3D radar system supports research in various fields, but handling the vast amount of data generated poses significant challenges. The EISCAT Data Access Portal offers authentication and authorisation features via the EGI Check-in service. Authorised researchers can browse metadata, select applications, visualise or download analysis results, and analyse data using cloud resources or their own software through online computing.
The EGI CheckIn allows for user registration, authenticated and authorised access to the EISCAT Data Access Portal, and access to the underlying distributed computing infrastructure, including embargoed data. Overall, EGI’s contribution enables EISCAT to meet the challenges of handling large-scale experimental data and advancing research in the fields of atmospheric and ionospheric studies.
