Implementing Copernicus services at the Norwegian Water and Energy Directorate with Airflow and actinia
06-30, 11:00–11:30 (Europe/Tirane), UBT C / N109 - Second Floor

At the Norwegian Water and Energy Directorate (NVE), the OSGeo Community project actinia was introduced together with the Open Source Apache Airflow software as a platform for delivering operational Copernicus services at national scale.
In the presentation, we will illustrate how Airflow and actinia work together and present current and future applications operationalized on the platform.

Those applications cover currently:
- Avalanches
- Flooding
- snow cover
- lake ice

More services related to NVE`s area of responsibility are being investigated, like landslides, slush flows, glacier lake outburst floods, or specific land cover changes...
