The Sonnblick Observatory as a measuring station contributs to various networks.
Scientific networks like VAO (Virtual Alpine Observatory) or the EU-project INTERACT support the exchange with other research stations and help scientists to get access to the stations.
Measuring networks focus on a regulated data retrieval around the world. They define measuring standards and manage the data storage using world data bases. Such standards are importanly necessary for comparisions, the analysis of the measurements taken by various stations and the use of these data for simulations related to weather and climate change.
