For large parts of the general public media are the central source of information about climate change, and today people are increasingly turning to the online services offered by classic and newer media providers in order to stay informed. Therefore, analyses of online reporting are important for the understanding of how climate change is constructed in public debates.
To contribute to this goal an Online Media Monitor for climate change will be developed. This will result in a website offering CliSAP-members an access to data of an automated daily updated monitoring of the climate debate in online media. The project will thus expand the available social-scientific data on climate change.
