1 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 The World Radiation Monitoring Center and the Baseline Surface Radiation Network

2 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 Do we Understand Climate Change?

3 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 What Makes our Climate?The Radiation Budget

4 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 The Local Radiation Budget can be measured

5 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 Example:

6 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 The Main Objectives of the World Radiation Monitoring Center (WRMC) Archiving uniform and consistent measurements throughout the Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN) to: 1.monitor the surface short-wave and long-wave radiative components and their changes with the best methods currently available, 2.provide data for the validation of satellite-based estimates of the surface radiative fluxes and 3.produce high quality observational data for comparison to climate models.

7 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 Brief WRMC-BSRN History: : The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO is a sub-organisation of the UNO) proposed the establishment of the BSRN : The BSRN started with 5 sites and the WRMC at ETH Zurich : BSRN officially became a contributor to the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) July: After 15 years the archive moved to Alfred-Wegener-Institut (AWI) in Bremerhaven, Germany under the direction of Dr. Gert König- Langlo.

8 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 Present State of the WRMC: 47 stations providing data

9 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 Present State of the WRMC: Datasets The typical average interval for radiation data is 1 minute: 1.LR 0100: Global, Diffuse, Direct, Long-wave down 47 stations 2.LR 0200: Long-wave spectral down 0 stations 3.LR 0300: Reflex, Long-wave up 9 stations 4.LR 0500: UV12 stations 5.LR 1000: Synoptic weather observation 8 stations 6.LR 1100: Upper air soundings with balloons25 stations 7.LR 1200: Total ozone 8 stations 8.LR 1300: Aerosol optical depths (dust) 14 stations 9.LR 1300: Ceilometer data (cloud base height) 3 stations 10. LR 30x0: Radiation measurements from tower11 stations

10 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 How to manage a variety of datasets for a variety of customers? 1.Homepage: 2.FTP-server: ftp://ftp.bsrn.awi.de/ ftp://ftp.bsrn.awi.de/ 3.Easy access to any dataset via: PANGAEA, 4.… search machines 5.… DOIs.

11 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 Workflow within the WRMC: 1.Any accepted BSRN-station has a station scientist. 2.Each month the station scientist generates one station-to-archive file according to file format definition from the Technical Plan for BSRN Data Management. 3.The monthly files include all metadata and datasets of one station. 4.The station scientist copies (ftp) this file to the WRMC at AWI. 5.At AWI the file gets format checked and accepted/rejected. 6.Accepted files gets imported into PANGAEA. 7.During the import process each logical record gets a unique DOI. 8.All datasets gets immediately accessible via PANAGEA. 9.Search machines harvest the PANGAEA accessible metadata.

12 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 Present State of the WRMC: 5743 station-months available ……….

13 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 What offers PANGAEA?

14 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 What offers PANGAEA? PANGAEA presents well defined metadata for any dataset (no login)

15 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 PANGAEA presents well defined metadata for any dataset (no login) What offers PANGAEA?

16 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 PANGAEA presents the data itself in different formats (ftp, text, html) What offers PANGAEA?

17 Gert König-Langlo, DataCite Meeting 2010 Google Earth Overlay
