Daten & Publikationen

Die Helmholtz Klimainitiative "Regionale Klimaänderungen - Ursachen und Folgen (REKLIM)" ist ein Forschungsverbund der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft, der am 16.07.2009 gegründet wurde und an dem insgesamt neun Helmholtz-Forschungszentren aus dem Bereich Erde und Umwelt beteiligt sind (Kennung: REKLIM-2009-07-16).


Data bases

Die Wissensplattform ist eine gemeinsame Initiative von REKLIM dem Klimabüro Polar & Meer am AWI, der Universität Bremen und des AWI (Kennung: REKLIM-2012-04). Hier werden wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse, Kartenmaterial und Daten rund um das Thema Meereis zentral für alle wisenschaftliche und gesellschaftliche Ebenen in unterschiedlichen Vertiefungs- und Detaillierungsgraden bereitgestellt.
