Groups audience: 

Hi all,
Taylor & Francis just have published a Big Data article collection spanning
virtually all sciences, with free access until June 2017:

Part of the selection is our presentation of the EarthServer initiative
(abstract below):

Big Data Analytics for Earth Sciences: the EarthServer Approach
Big Data Analytics is an emerging field since massive storage and computing
capabilities have been made available by advanced e-infrastructures. Earth and
Environmental sciences are likely to benefit from Big Data Analytics techniques
supporting the processing of the large number of Earth Observation datasets
currently acquired and generated through observations and simulations. However,
Earth Science data and applications present specificities in terms of relevance
of the geospatial information, wide heterogeneity of data models and formats,
and complexity of processing. Therefore, Big Earth Data Analytics requires
specifically tailored techniques and tools. The EarthServer Big Earth Data
Analytics engine offers a solution for coverage-type datasets, built around a
high performance array database technology, and the adoption and enhancement of
standards for service interaction (OGC WCS and WCPS). The EarthServer solution,
led by the collection of requirements from scientific communities and
international initiatives, provides a holistic approach that ranges from query
languages and scalability up to mobile access and visualization. The result is
demonstrated and validated through the development of lighthouse applications in
the Marine, Geology, Atmospheric, Planetary and Cryospheric science domains.

    HI all,
    just learnt that unfortunately access is not (yet?) as free as I anticipated.
    Should you want a copy of our paper please contact me and I will gladly send you
    one immediately.

    Hi Peter,
    Thanks for the update; in any case, I took some time yesterday to browse through the website and found out that there are still several articles available as Open Access (e.g. http://explore.tandfonline.com/page/est/gsis-editorschoice) – unfortunately not your publication L
    In any case, the specific journal is something to keep an eye on.
    Best regards,
    Vassilis

    Hi all,
    given the unexpectedly many requests for our EarthServer datacube paper let me
    try posting it here. Additionally, I am adding a (not yet published) follow-up
    paper on datacube progress in EarthServer-2. Sorry for spamming those not
    interested!
    cheers,
    Peter
