The JERICO-NEXT partners will provide a large number of in-situ monitoring and numerical modelling infrastructures, with numerous marine observations and forecasting products for the coastal zone. In this WP, a number of homogenization activities will enable a more efficient data flow from the different monitoring platforms. However, there is also a need for the JERICO-NEXT activities to be connected to a Virtual Infrastructure system that will provide not only the required interconnections but also the necessary background for building synthetic products based on original data.

In this task, an extended review of the existing Virtual Access platforms/systems will be carried out in order to find out to what extent the JERICO-NEXT activities could be supported. Apart from the specific requirements of the JERICO-NEXT products that will be gathered taking also into account the WP6 services, the study will also examine the technical background of each infrastructure and its ability to efficiently support a multi-node distributed system. Furthermore, suggestions for the full support of the JERICO-NEXT activities will be made together with a proposal for the required actions and adaptations.
