The Hydrology Thematic Exploitation Platform (H-TEP) provides cloud processing capabilities and links the hydrological model (HYPE) with earth observations (EO) and meteorological forecasts.
H-TEP is to reduce the time and money spent on computing infrastructure and management and instead focuses on:
*using large state-of-the-art data sets (EO and others) in hydrological applications.
*managed services providing expert support, both technical and thematic.
*community building by fostering a spirit of resource- and knowledge-sharing.
*rapid prototyping, benchmarking and deployment of processing algorithms.
