Long-Term Archive at DKRZ

Go to MetaXA Data Submission Portal
There are several options for storing your data at DKRZ, but for long-term archiving you need to make a choice between WDCC and DOKU. You can also split your dataset between them. The WDCC (World Data Centre for Climate) offers long-term archiving for datasets relevant for climate and Earth System research in a highly standardised manner following the FAIR principles. In comparison DOKU is the simpler solution to preserve your research data while still meeting the requirements of good scientific practice.
