On Friday, 06 November 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (USA Mountain Time), our FTP services, which also includes automated data requests from services such as Polaris and the GLAS Subsetter, will be unavailable because of system maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
This Web site brings the Polar Commons to life. Using our data-sharing tools, investigators have created access to their data and have defined your rights to reuse such data. Now you can use the tools in Discover to find data to support your research.
Are you an ice sheet researcher, or would you like to see what open sharing can build for research communities? In this Web site we demonstrate an application that pulls in data about ice sheets from researchers around the globe. Look in this Web site first for listings of data on ice sheets before searching across multiple Web sites.
By subscribing to the NSIDC Catalog Atom Feed, you can obtain descriptions of all of our data sets with links to the data, documentation, and metadata.
