The department Data Management offers dedicated and comprehensive support for all stages of the research data life cycle of Earth System research data:

  • Comprehensive Earth System research data management (RDM) support, advice and training along the FAIR data guiding principles
  • RDM in the spirit of the FAIR data guiding principles (a.o.):
    • Long-term archival of Earth System research data (World Data Center for Climate, LTA WDCC)
    • Support for the editing process and quality control for publication of relevant Earth System research data 
    • Data search and interdisciplinary data access with clear data usage licenses (CERA database)
  • Support for community-effort model simulations, e.g. currently in the framework of CMIP6
  • Acquisition, provisioning and long-term stocking of relevant flagship datasets, e.g. ERA5 or CMIP3/5/6, for the german Earth System Science community
  • Support for virtual research environments and web-based data analysis
  • Support for the global dissemination and the associated preparation of relevant research datasets via the global ESGF-infrastructure
  • Support for the development of data workflows with specific focus on the upcoming generation of high-resolution (O(1-10km)) global climate models
  • Long-term archival of Earth System research data for reference purpose and compliance with common rules of good scientific practice (LTA DOKU)
