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.
Do you have data, casts, and services that you want to publish and advertise? Libre created Web-based tools to help you publish, advertise, and share your data, casts, and services easily and free.
The Libre project created the Data Ad Web-based tool to help you create Atom feeds and share them with the scientific community. Data Ad is a process that helps you advertise your data sets so users and computers on the internet discover your data quickly and more efficiently. Data Ad uses Atom technology, which means that your Data Ad or feed can be viewed with any desktop or browser-based feed reader.
You can automate the features of the Data Ad Tool for all your data by using the Data Ad Application Programming Interface (API).

The nsidc.org OpenSearch API provides a simple way to discover and access NSIDC's data holdings that are hosted through Searchlight. We support two levels of the OpenSearch API: Data Set and Granule. Use the Data Set OpenSearch API to search for data sets that fulfill your search criteria, or use the Granule OpenSearch API to search for data meeting your search criteria for a particular data set.
