The Modular Earth Science Infrastructure (MESI) aims at integrating satellite data, plane based systems, permanent and mobile instrument networks, observatories, scientific drilling infrastructure, as well as analytical and experimental facilities. Furthermore, it provides systems for processing and filing of data.
The GFZ assigns Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) to datasets. These datasets are achieved and published through GFZ Data Services and cover all geoscientific disciplines. They range from large dynamic datasets from global monitoring networks with real-time data qcuistion to the full suite of highly variable datasets collected by individual researchers or small teams.
