 2.86 terabytes of sediment/rock data & images archived
Archived in software-independent form, to NARA standards
 using Open Archive Information System (OAIS) guidelines
 Documentation in FGDC form, moving to ISO 19115
 Archive periodically migrated to new media
   • moving from LTO-3 to LTO-4 this summer

NOAA’s Climate Database Modernization Program (CDMP) is a partnership with private
 industry to image and key paper & film records and make them available on the Web.
National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC)

                 Data Access
    Making data freely and publicly available.

  • Geospatially-enabled relational databases

  • Web services (Feature & Map) & browse tools

  • ArcIMS viewers (in migration to ArcGIS Server)

  • Metadata access via Geospatial One-Stop/GCMD

  • Collaboration with MGDS/R2R/UNEP-GRID/SESAR

  • Links to Related Data (reciprocal links encouraged)

  • Working on near-line access to entire 190+ tb archive
             National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC)


           Why add your data to the long-term archive?
•   NOAA/NGDC’s mandate includes a commitment to provide access to, and
    long-term archival for data pertaining to sea floor and lakebed samples.
•   NGDC data archives are maintained to NARA standards with offsite backups,
    storage on approved media, and periodic migration to new media and technologies.

•   Funded projects end, scientists retire, and institutional resources for maintaining
    scientific data and records can change – place a copy in the archive to ensure its
    continued accessibility to the scientific community

                            We’re in it for the Long Haul,

      26,281 Cruise/leg cross-correlations

         MGDS/SIO Explorer Standard Ids were found for
         samples in the Index database and added as a new
         parameter. Existing cruise identifiers were kept in
         their original form.

         This is an ongoing effort for historic samples.
         Most new samples, at least from UNOLS ships are
         expected to use the more standard cruise/legs.

              Requests to the Curators’ Consortium

• Please check your contact information & send us corrections

• Help keep the Index up to date, send data for new samples in your collection

• Please help add standardized leg information for your older samples

• Make use of the Index on your web sites via links and web services,
  we will be happy to assist you

• Please take advantage of NOAA’s CDMP to scan/enter remaining
  materials related to your collections. There is room in the 2009 budget
  for additional digitization. 2009 may be the final year.
