Rapid Climate Change (RAPID and RAPID-WATCH)

RAPID Data Centre's role

The RAPID Data Centre (RDC) will provide the data management to promote data sharing and collaboration between projects and to ensure that RAPID and RAPID-WATCH data are stored safely for long term use.

The RDC consists of the NERC designated data centres for atmospheric and oceanographic data

The RDC web site provides a central point for programme participants to access information related to data collection and modelling activities being carried out by other RAPID and RAPID-WATCH projects. The aim is to assemble a high quality, well documented data set at the end of each programme for use by the scientific community beyond the life of the programmes.

The division of labour within the RDC is broadly as follows
