World Data Centres

 

decorationWorld Data Center System part of the International Council of Scientific Union (ICSU), 52 WDCs as of 2003 the World Data Center System works to guarantee access to solar,  geophysical and related environmental data.  It serves the whole scientific community by assembling, scrutinizing, organizing and disseminating data and information. Recently a new ICSU World Data System based on the ICSU World Data Center System and the ICSU Federation of Astronomical and Geophysical data-analysis Services has been created. Below a list of World Data Centres collaborating with WMO can be found.
