Data Access

A large part of the climate data stored at DKRZ is accessible through different data portals. Here you will find brief information on and links to the different portals hosted at DKRZ or run with participation of DKRZ.

World Data Center for Climate / CERA at DKRZ (WDCC)

  • Data Type: Earth system model data and related observations, data for and from climate research
  • Description: The services of the WDCC focus on climate data collection, long-term preservation, and dissemination through DKRZ's operational CERA data and information system.

 IPCC DDC Logo

IPCC Data Distribution Centre

  • Data Type: data underlying the IPCC Assessment Reports
  • Description: The IPCC DDC provides climate, socio-economic and environmental data, both from the past and also in scenarios projected into the future. The DDC is overseen by the IPCC Task Group on Data and Scenario Support for Impact and Climate Analysis (TGICA) and jointly managed by the British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC) in the United Kingdom, the ICSU World Data Center for Climate (WDCC) in Germany, and the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) at Columbia University, New York, USA. The data are provided by co-operating modelling and analysis centers. Within the IPCC-DDC, the WDCC/DKRZ hosts the Reference Data Archive for the climate model output data underlying the IPCC Assessment Reports.

 ESGF Logo

Earth System Grid Federation

  • Data Type: Data from climate research generated for and within climate model intercomparison projects: global model output (e.g. CMIP5), regional model output (e.g. CORDEX) and selected observational data (e.g. obs4MIPs)
  • Description: ESGF is a worldwide federation for climate data with data nodes in Europe, USA, Canada, China, Japan and Australia. User registration is easy and immediately effective. Registration and data download are free of charge. Most data are also accessible for other purposes than research, even for commercial use.

IS-ENES Logo

IS-ENES - Infrastructure for the European Network for Earth System Modelling (ENES)

  • Data type: Climate data
  • Description: The ENES data services will help you to find and access climate data provided by the distributed data centers within the ENES data federation. Information on the different climate models and tools devoloped in Europe and on European high performance computing facilities is also provided.

KomFor

  • Data Type: Research data from the Earth system sciences
  • Description: The KomFor data services will help to find high quality
    data provided by the WDC Cluster Earth System Research. The members are
    Pangaea (AWI, MARUM), WDC-Climate (DKRZ), WDC-RSAT (DLR) and GFZ
    (GeoForschungsZentrum, associated WDC partner).

 EUDAT Logo

EUDAT - European Data Infrastructure

  • Data type: Data objects and collections from various disciplines.
  • Description: B2FIND is the EUDAT metadata service allowing users to discover what kind of data is stored through the B2SAFE and B2SHARE services which collect a large number of datasets from various disciplines. EUDAT will also harvest metadata from communities that have stable metadata providers to create a comprehensive joint catalogue to help researchers find interesting data objects and collections.

C3-Grid Logo

C3-Grid

  • Data Type: Climate data
  • Description: The C3-Grid Portal provides access to various climate data centers in Germany. DKRZ integrates WDCC and ESGF data into C3-Grid and makes this data available for a set of climate processing workflows.
