Understanding the concept of a Digital Twin

  • by

The concept of a Digital Twin represents a cutting-edge approach to ocean conservation, leveraging the explosion of data from various sources and advanced computing technologies. A Digital Twin is essentially a digital replica of a physical entity, enabling users to access high-quality information, services, models, scenarios, forecasts, and visualizations. In ocean conservation, this concept is pursued through initiatives like the EU’s Destination Earth (DestinE) and the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative.
