The archiving of scientific data is a sophisticated mission in nearly all research projects. In this paper, we introduce a new online archive of atmospheric measurement data from the "High definition clouds and precipitation for advancing climate prediction" (HD(CP)2) research initiative. The project data archive is quality managed, easy to use, and is now open for other atmospheric research data. The archive’s creation was already taken into account during the HD(CP)2 project planning phase and the necessary resources were granted. The funding enabled the HD(CP)2 project to build a sound archive structure, which guarantees that the collected data are accessible for all researchers in the project and beyond. View Full-Text
