The C3Grid project (Collaborative Climate Community Data and Processing Grid) aims to develop tools, especially for the climate community, for easy access and searches on climatologic data such as modeling results and observations.
The user will be able to uniformly access climate data of the paticipating data archives (to which belong amongst others the world data centres, the German Weather Service DWD and several institutions of climate sciences).
With the deployment of standardized working procedures („workflows“) available through C3Grid, in which FUB is taking part, the user will effectivly be supported during his data processing.
To ensure a sustainable collaboration with the earth system sciences, the department of Meteorology of FUB also supports the efforts to create a community of C3Grid users within climate and earth system scientists to benefit the scientific progress.
