Data for Science and Technology covers the proceedings of the Seventh International CODATA Conference. This text is comprised of 133 chapters with a total of 180 papers from 400 hundred authors, which cover CODATA concerned with environmental and energy questions along with problems of data banking and telecommunications network operations. This book provides valuable assessment of data and points out alternatives, trends, and requirements for the future, such as production and use of data in pure applied sciences; data for the development of human settlements in a dynamic world; informatical analysis of scientific research activities; and data on our evolutionary heritage. Researchers from all scientific fields will find this book a great source reference material, since it presents research from various disciplines.
