The Integrated Climate Data Center (ICDC) allows easy access to climate relevant data from in-situ measurements and satellite remote sensing. These data are important to determine the status and the changes in the climate system. Additionally some relevant re-analysis data are included, which are modeled on the basis of observational data.
There is a regular maintenance slot for adding new data sets and features to our data base on every Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m. (Central European Time). You can still use our data center during this time frame, but some interruptions while accessing our data sets might occur.
The Integrated Climate Data Center (ICDC) was started in 2008 as part of the CliSAP Cluster of Excellence as a climate database for in-situ and satellite data, with the aim of creating easy access to high-quality earth observation data and to publish data that has been created in CliSAP . After CliSAP ended in 2018, the ICDC became an institution of the Center for Earth System Research and Sustainability (CEN). Further data sets, also from the spectrum of the humanities, which were created as part of research in the Clusters of Excellence and the CEN, have now enriched the ICDC portfolio. Personal scientific advice on the use and publication of data is one of the core tasks of the ICDC.
