By Michael Lautenschlager, Manfred Reinke

Climate and Environmental Database Systems includes the papers provided on the moment foreign Workshop on weather and Environmental Database structures, held November 21-23, 1995, in Hamburg, Germany.
weather and environmental facts could be separated into periods, quite a lot of good based facts and smaller quantities of much less established facts. the massive quantities are produced via numerical weather types and via satellites, dealing with info within the order of importance of a hundred Tbytes for the weather modelling websites and one thousand Tbytes for the recording and processing of satellite tv for pc info. Smaller quantities of poorly established info are the environmental info, which come usually from observations and measurements. Present-day difficulties in facts administration are attached with numerous info kinds.
Climate and Environmental Database Systems addresses the cutting-edge, sensible adventure, and destiny views for weather and environmental database platforms, and should be used as a textual content for a graduate point direction at the topic or as a reference for researchers or practitioners in industry.

It is possible to switch between coloured area-maps and isoline-maps in black and white. Cera-Graphics is a modified The CERA Data Model 42 version of the OPYC (Ocean Isopycnal General Circulation Model) plot processor developed by Gillett & Oberhuber at the DKRZ. Based on the GRID format the PINGO (Procedural INterface for Grib-formatted Objects) modules, developed at the DKRZ, are planed to facilitate scientific analyses and data format conversions. The scientific analyses apply from simple procedures like the calculation of long term means to complex algorithms such as the derivation of POPs (Principal Oscillation Patterns).

Data access and processing within the database system is only allowed for access by the ORACLE GUI. Users must identify themselves by account and password which are restricted to registered DKRZ users. Users who enter the system by the ORACLE GUI are allowed to access almost the entire data archive. CERA access by the WWW interface is not limited by account and password. It is an anonymous database access but the direct access is restricted to the metadata system, the data catalogue. WWW users are allowed to inspect the data archive and to specify keyword searches within the metadata.

In a first step simple functionality will be implemented providing format conversion to ASCII code, data extraction of time ranges and areas, application of basic arithmetical operations on two-dimensional fields, and the calculation of extrema, absolute values, mean values, variance, and temporal and zonal averages. html) THE WWW GATEWAY The concept of the WWW Gatewayl is the same as that for the metadata retrieval of the GUI. Currently the WWW Gateway to CERA allows the searching for datasets in accordance with the scientific information subclass and to retrieve the metadata of all subclasses related to a dataset.
