Abstract

Specific parameters determined from continental ice sheet or glacier cores can be used to reconstruct former climate. Tο use this scientific resource effectively, an information system is needed which guarantees consistent long-term data storage and provides easy access. Such a system, to archive any data of paleoclimatic relevance, together with the related metadata, raw data and evaluated paleoclimatic data, is presented. It is based on a relational database and provides standardized import and export routines, easy access with uniform retrieval functions and tools for visualizing the data. The network is designed as a client-server system, providing access through the Internet with proprietary client software including a high functionality or read-only access to published data via the World Wide Web (www.pangaea.de).
