NSIDC has been managing data programs for NASA, NOAA and NSF for decades. Our current active data management programs include the NASA NSIDC Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC), NOAA@NSIDC, and Exchange for Local Observations and Knowledge of the Arctic (ELOKA).
Please note that the primary program accepting data currently is the NSIDC DAAC. NSIDC DAAC publishes assigned data products from NASA missions and projects. Data producers of NASA-funded unassigned data products can also request their data be assigned to the NSIDC DAAC.
Each of our data management programs take a different approach to accepting and managing data submission requests. The NSIDC DAAC is accepting requests to publish data resulting from NASA Earth science funding and that are relevant to understanding the Earth's frozen regions and their role in global climate.
If you're not sure which program best fits your data submission needs or if you're interested in talking with NSIDC about managing your data program, please contact us.
