WDDC / German Climate Computation Center

DKRZ_logo_3DThe German Climate Computational Center (DKRZ) is a national German facility, providing state-of-the-art super-computing data service and other associated services to the German and also the international scientific community to conduct top of the line Earth System and Climate Modelling. DKRZ operates a fully scalable supercomputing system designed for and dedicated to earth system modelling. DKRZ is currently replacing its high performance computing system with a new 7640 core IBM Power6 supercomputer with a peak performance of 140 TeraFlops and will upgrade its mass storage system to a capacity of at least 60 PetaByte. Associated services provided by DKRZ include general user support as well as specific support in scientific computing. DKRZ plays an active role within the German e-science initiative and is a leading partner within the Collaborative Climate Community Data and Processing Grid (C3-Grid, see also http://www.c3grid.de/) as well as the FP7 project IS-ENES (Infrastructure for the European Network for Earth System Modelling"). Together with the Model and Data group - which will be integrated into DKRZ in 2010 - DKRZ operates the ICSU World Data Centre for Climate (WDCC) which archives and disseminates more than 340 TB climate model data and related observations. All WDCC data are accessible by a standard web-interface (cera.wdcc-climate.de). WDCC/DKRZ acts as one of the three data nodes for the next IPCC assessment report. The data management for CMIP5/IPCC-AR5 will be shared between BADC (UK), PCMDI (US) and WDCC/DKRZ.
WDCC/DKRZ will participate in OpenAIRE with respect to Earth system model data management and long-term archiving.
