The Climate Change Centre Austria (CCCA) Data Centre expected a comprehensive project outcome of completely new simulated High Resolution Climate Scenarios for Austria in the time range from 1965 till 2100 on a daily basis. For consumption, 13 model runs, 5 meteorological parameters like temperature, 3 emission scenarios, over 1600 NetCDF files with an average size of 13 GB were calculated. How could we implement proper data management processes on such data packages? The idea of using the RDA Recommendation on Data Citation of Evolving Data as a pilot “NetCDF Pilot Implementation of Climate Scenarios” came out.
This adoption story was brought forward by the RDA Europe 4.0 Austrian National Node.
