Model and Data Group, Max Planck Institute for Meteorology
Data Center Description
The overall objective of the Model and Data group is to develop and maintain an infrastructure, which allows it to carry out modeling for climate research efficiently.
The group Models and Data (M&D) will in the future support a growing number of scientists in an increasing number of projects and on an increasing number of sites. It will also be engaged in a more European framework. Therefore, mechanisms have to be established which allow it to balance the increasing demands and enables a long term planning. The general idea is to create within the context of the EU-project PRISM a standardized modeling system, which is user friendly and allows the scientists to perform their work in an automated way, which minimizes the manual intervention by the M&D group.
