Introduction to the thematic nodes of IDIS

This website is dedicated to the thematic field of Plasma Physics as part of the Integrated and Distributed Information Service (IDIS) developed during the EUROPlaNet Project. In General the IDIS System is divided into five thematic nodes and one technical node. All nodes can be reached via the top menu.

This thematic node is hosted by the IWF Graz and is established in close cooperation with CDPP Toulouse, which also takes part to the EUROPlaNet Project.

  1. IWF (Space Research Institute) Graz:
  2. CDPP (Plasmas Physics Data Centre) Toulouse:

Here you can find a list of potential participants at the Plasma Node: (Details)

The main Aims of the Plasma Node will be to:

  • Establish collaborative work in the field of Plasma Science at first within the EUROPlaNet participants.
  • Exchange well established databases and scientific tools.
  • Collect knowledge of effective Information Management.
  • Prepare IDIS to go towards a Virtual Observatory Infrastructure.

A listing of the Node's responsible areas can be found here: (Details)

There are three "side-projects" running in the focus of Plasma Node:

  1. Administration of the Plasma Node homepage platform.
  2. Extension of the CDPP/AMDA-Tool (Automated Multi-Dataset Analysis) for Planetary Science.
  3. Development of a node related resource inventory and an according search engine.
