Cardiff University is the main European centre for the HIPASS and
HIJASS all-sky HI surveys. The Cardiff group will use this expertise
to work on the simulations of the HI sky, one of the five key science
areas for the SKA. The other role of the Cardiff group within the
consortium will be to work on the data analysis issues. This will
build on Cardiff’s experience as the data-analysis centre for
the GEO 600 gravitational wave telescope, for which the data-handling
problems are very similar to those which willbe faced by the SKA.
