Informatics Research at NSIDC: Resources


In search of a common language
The Semantic Sea Ice Interoperability Initiative (SSIII), a project at NSIDC, tries to tackle the challenge of organizing data within language systems.

A new way to find Arctic data
The Arctic Data Explorer crosses disciplines and offers Arctic data on sea ice, biology, permafrost, meteorology, chemistry, demography, marine ecology, anthropology, oceanography, hydrography, biodiversity, and terrestrial ecology.

Libre frees polar data
Science is increasingly based on data, yet the systems and tools for sharing data lag the immediacy and variety of data being produced.

Capturing a world
The Exchange for Local Observations and Knowledge of the Arctic (ELOKA) needed a better way to preserve its unique constellation of data types and data relationships, and make sure these survive the rapid changes in technology.
