    • Samples (Xerox copy of typical description, photo copy)
    • Specifications, formats, resolution, etc.
            NOAA/NGDC Commitment to
             Sea Floor Data Stewardship

                      Data Access
         Making data freely and publicly available.


               Data Rescue & Digitizing
     Rescuing data from scientists’ desks and file cabinets.


                   Permanent Archive
                We’re in it for the Long Haul,
         Preserving data for your great-grandchildren

Did we mention that we provide a long-term archive for
  data from sea floor and lakebed samples at NGDC?
                Why add your data to the NGDC archive?

•     NGDC’s mandate includes a commitment to provide access to, and long-term
      archival for data pertaining to sea floor and lakebed samples.

•     NGDC prepares and maintains documentation according to FGDC/ISO metadata
      standards. When metadata standards change, NGDC migrates metadata to new
      standards, maintaining its interoperability with other systems.
•     NGDC archives metadata with the data to increase their long-term utility.

•     NGDC data archives are maintained to NARA standards with offsite backups,
      storage on approved media, and periodic migration to new media and technologies.

    NGDC is finalizing an agreement with the LDEO Marine Geoscience Data
    System (MGDS) to permanently archive multibeam data from their system.

    Once finalized, NGDC hopes to extend the agreement to include sample data.


    We’re in it for the long haul, preserving data for your great-grandchildren.
