The purpose of the EUMETNET Data Rescue and Recovery Initiative is to support the running data rescue activities by

  • Providing a “preliminary” data inventory of digital existing data and of data to be rescued
  • Increasing the number digitized records (as far as possible)
  • Searching for projects or other support to facilitate data rescue
  • Homogenizing digital existing data when necessary
  • Making these data publicly available


Above all our focus is on climate change, therefore we are looking for

  • Series of really long-term (centennial) stations
  • Series of mountain station of at least 50 years
  • Series of time series in data sparse regions


The expert team on Data Rescue has developed a questionnaire to get an overview of the data situation in WMO’s area of the Regional Association VI.
