The newly launched AtMoDat project is carrying out research to enable data used in Atmospheric Models for Climate Research to be open and usable by the wide array of smaller modeling project and urban climate model research. The research will make use of DataCite DOIs and metadata schema, acting as extension to the schema while being supported by AtMoDat partner data infrastructure service providers
