Abstract

Until december 2011 we had a very successful BiGGrid project "eScience Infrastructure for Bird Migration Modelling", by many called FlySafe because the models are used to enhance the safety of pilots by avoiding bird strikes. Until now it has already contributed to eight WoS publications. This project started in 2009 and in Januari 2011 the content was slightly changed in the direction of a Virtual lab for Wadden Sea research. Our VL developments have had such a great impact that currently ecological VLs play important roles in the Dutch contribution to LifeWatch1 and also in the e-Ecology program of NLeSC2. Because LifeWatch is still in the start up phase we ask support of BiGGrid to bridge the gap during the year 2012 and to continue our developments of the VLs for Bird Movement Analysis (www.UvA-BiTS.nl) and the VL-ENRAM (European Network of Radar surveillance of Animal Migration). This BiGGrid project will be carried out in close collaboration with NLeSC and LifeWatch-NL.
