Data and services for the Solid Earth

Welcome

The purpose of the Solid Earth Centre is to facilitate access to data and contribute to the creation of new products and services by adding value to the available spatial and in-situ data. It is part of the national and European landscapes in close coordination with the infrastructure in place and under construction.

For this, the Solid Earth Center, has the task to federate the existing centres in the service of the Solid Earth community.

It relies on a portal giving access to spatial data, in-situ and experimentation of the domain. It aims to provide added value, especially for data and services in fields where data centres do not exist or need to be developed and in the articulation with European and international systems. The Center, in collaboration with other structures in the field and within the research infrastructure Data Terra, will strengthen the Solid Earth community by giving it access to the data and products it needs to his research.

Estimation of Marmolada glacier collapse volume using Pléiades imagery

The deadly Marmolada glacier collapse happened on 3 July 2022. On 6 July 2022, Pléiades 1B (CNES, Airbus DS)  acquired a clear-sky stereo pair of the area. From these images we could estimate a detached volume of ice of 65’000 ± 10’000 cubic meters. Method First, a digital elevation model (DEM) was generated from Pléiades stereo images with the Ames […]

Analysis performed with the ALADIM GEP service to construct automated landslide inventories using Pléiades very-high resolution images

On 14-08-2021, a Mw 7.2 earthquake hit Haïti. This event was followed by a few days of heavy rains triggered by tropical depression Grace. The combination of these extreme phenomena triggered a large number of landslides in the hilly region of Haïti, especially in the region of the Pic Macaya National Park.

Needs Assessment for a Digital Surface Model Pleiades Generation Service

Cnes, Theia and ForM@Ter plan to set up a Digital Surface Model generation service for non-experts from pairs or triplets of Pleiades images. In order to assess the needs of scientific and institutional communities for the establishment of such a service, a survey is open until 30 July: https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/LXHJP2Z
