TCO CEE data building warehouse

29 July 2002

A Terrestrial Carbon Observation (TCO) data warehouse building workshop will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, 16-21 November 2002. Carbon scientists, data holders and programmers from the CEE region will be invited to the workshop and will participate in finding, formatting and preparing data and information which will then be made available to the general and scientific communities. Data gathering and formatting will occur before the workshop and data will be combined with the relevant data sets already available including those from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC).

The data from the workshop will be built into a warehouse, using FAO's Dynamic Atlas data management software, which can then be used by participants and other scientists. Participants will also have the opportunity to receive training in the use of the Dynamic Atlas to allow them to implement and use the software in their home institutions.

Additional information and the application form to attend the workshop are available on the GTOS Web page.

TCO will invite participants from Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, the Slovak Republic, Slovenia, and the Ukraine. If you are interested in participating in the workshop please send the completed application form and your CV to the GTOS Secretariat (gtos@fao.org).

The workshop is funded by the Government of the Czech Republic.
