  Name: World Data Center for Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere (WDC-RSAT)
  Abbreviation: WDC-RSAT
  Description: Primary focus of the World Data Center for Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere (WDC-RSAT) is to offer scientists and the general public free and simplified access (in the sense of a ?one-stop shop?) to a continuously growing collection of atmosphere-related satellite-based data sets and services. These data holdings are available on-line and range from raw data collected by remote sensors to higher level data and information products. WDC-RSAT is supporting the development of user oriented value added products. The current WDC-RSAT data holding contains data and information on trace gases, aerosols, clouds, land and sea surface parameters, and solar radiation. This is achieved either by giving access to data stored at the data center or by acting as a portal that contains links to other data providers.
