IPY Data in the GCMD

See more...

The International Polar Year Data and Information Service (IPYDIS) is a global partnership of data centers, archives, and networks working to ensure proper stewardship of IPY and related data. The National Snow and Ice Data Center acts as a coordination office for the IPYDIS to ensure the long term preservation and broad, interdisciplinary, and non-expert access to IPY data. Another coordination office focused on near-real time and operational data streams is based at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute. Other national and international coordination offices are also being established.

Through these Data Coordination Offices, the IPYDIS plans to visibly track the data flow for IPY. To help with this effort, IPY Project coordinators are asked to provide with a data management point of contact and information about data archiving arrangements. This is essential to identifying IPY data repositories and other IPYDIS participants. Please see the Data section of this site for more information about registering and accessing IPY data.

The ICSU/WMO Joint Committee for IPY seeks to have a complete description of all IPY data by March 2009. Please register your data.

This site helps researchers and data users identify data access mechanisms, archives, and services. It also provides information and assistance to data managers on compliance with standards, development of a union catalog of IPY metadata, and other data management requirements for IPY. It provides a general communication forum for all matters related to accessing, managing, and preserving IPY and related data.
