To achieve its goals, DT-GEO will build the components of a Digital Twin- virtual replica of physical systems that combine real-time data streams and high-fidelity models.
Digital twins are built on interactive digital platforms, which allow for continuous observation and simulation of supercomputing tasks to recreate present and future scenarios. DT-GEO capitalises on the outburst of supercomputing and technical capabilities to carry out advanced, real-time modelling and analysis for diagnostics and forecasting.
Towards a European Digital future
DT-GEO aims at being a first step of a long-term community effort towards a twin on geophysical extremes integrated in the Destination Earth (DestinE) initiative.
This ambitious European initiative plans to develop a high-precision digital model of the Earth with the purpose of mapping and anticipating climate-related events worldwide as accurately as possible.
As such, observational data collected by DT-GEO partners will be continuously integrated into DestinE Digital Twin to make the Earth model more accurate.
