Webinar Abstract:
The NSF Arctic Data Center serves as the primary data and software
repository for the Arctic section of NSF Polar Programs. Our mission is to
help the research community reproducibly preserve and discover all products
of NSF-funded science in the Arctic, including data, metadata, and software
products. Key to the initiative is the partnership between NCEAS at UC
Santa Barbara, DataONE, and NOAA’s NCEI, each of which bring critical
capabilities to the Center. Infrastructure from the successful
NSF-sponsored DataONE federation of data repositories will enable data
replication to NCEI, providing both offsite and institutional diversity
that is critical to long term preservation. Training and outreach staff
will provide hands on training at Arctic research conferences and in
dedicated training sessions targeting early-career and under-represented
populations. Training and outreach will focus on effective means for
long-term data management, following a curriculum being developed and
refined by the open science community.
