An "Austrian Climate Data Centre" could become a central
location for climatological data for climate change and
climate change impact research in Austria. Aim of this
project is to define one (or several) concepts, what this
data centre should include and how it can be realized.
The concept will include information about the data stored
at the data base and technical needs and solutions (hard and
software) for the necessary applications. Additionally the
concept will also include an estimate of the costs for the
installation of the centre and the operational costs.
