researchThe National Science Foundation has opened a $5.9 million Arctic region-focused scientific research data center in the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

NSF’s Arctic Data Center will work to serve as the Arctic research community’s data preservation and discovery storage, the agency said March 23.

The center will work to facilitate Arctic data collection by the National Center for Atmospheric Research and the National Snow and Ice Data Center‘s Advanced Cooperative Arctic Data and Information Service

Matthew Jones, NCEAS director of informatics research and development and principal investigator for the NSF award, said the center is also designed to archive software, workflows and provenance information on the entire research program.

Marc Stieglitz, NSF’s Arctic natural sciences program manager, said the center seeks to help address rapid changes to the environment in the Arctic region.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration‘s National Centers for Environmental Information and the NSF-funded Data Observation Network for Earth support the Arctic data center cooperative agreement of NSF and NCEAS.

A webinar will be held April 21 to introduce the NSF Arctic Data Center to the research community.
