At its core, DT-GEO involves deploying 12 Digital Twin Components (DTCs). These DTCs are self-contained entities containing simulation codes, Artificial Intelligence capabilities, and real-time data streams connected to data lakes. They are designed to handle scientific inquiries and technical challenges such as hazard assessment, early warning forecasts, urgent computing, and resource prospecting.
The functionality of these DTCs will be assessed at 13 Site Demonstrators located in different regions globally. These locations serve as practical testing environments for the DTCs. This evaluation process is a crucial step towards achieving our ultimate objective, Destination Earth.
Furthermore, it’s important to note that our Site Demonstrators not only tackle technical challenges but also contribute to generating valuable scientific datasets and engage in outreach efforts. These sites play a significant role in advancing innovation in the field of geophysics.
