Title: The NGEE Arctic Data Archive -- Portal for Archiving and Distributing Data and Documentation

Abstract

The Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiments (NGEE Arctic) project is committed to implementing a rigorous and high-quality data management program. The goal is to implement innovative and cost-effective guidelines and tools for collecting, archiving, and sharing data within the project, the larger scientific community, and the public. The NGEE Arctic web site is the framework for implementing these data management and data sharing tools. The open sharing of NGEE Arctic data among project researchers, the broader scientific community, and the public is critical to meeting the scientific goals and objectives of the NGEE Arctic project and critical to advancing the mission of the Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Science, Biological and Environmental (BER) Terrestrial Ecosystem Science (TES) program.

  • The Online Metadata Editor (OME) is a web-based tool to help document scientific data in a well-structured, popular scientific metadata format. In this paper, we will discuss the newest tool that Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has developed to generate, edit, and manage metadata and how it is helping data-intensive science centers and projects, such as the U.S. Department of Energy s Next Generation Ecosystem Experiments (NGEE) in the Arctic to prepare metadata and make their big data produce big science and lead to new discoveries.
  • The open sharing of data and informa1on among the NGEE Team, the broader scien1fic community, and the public is cri1cal to mee1ng the scien1fic goals of the Next- Genera1on Ecosystem Experiment (NGEE) Arc1c project. In implemen1ng the integrated approach, the project is genera1ng diverse data sets from observa1ons, experiments, and models across field plot, polygonal landform, regional, and global scales and is drawing in a wealth of exis1ng data products collected and generated by other research organiza1ons across the Arc1c. Developing the data management infrastructure to support this approach is a significant challenge. Nonetheless, the NGEE Arc1c project is commiHedmore » to upholding a rigorous and high- quality data management strategy and the implementa1on of that strategy in an innova1ve, cost- effec1ve data collec1on, management, distribu1on, and archival framework. The NGEE Arc1c Data Portal will support the current research in Barrow and provide a consistent framework to support future research efforts as they expand to other regions.« less
  • A central data exchange facility was organized at Hawaii Institute of Geophysics to manage seismic data collected during project ROSE (the Rivera Ocean Seismic Experiment), a large marine seismic experiment. Prior to that experiment, wide consultation was made and much effort was expended in the establishment of a uniform, yet flexible, data exchange format. The participating institutions provided their data to the facility where the data were catalogued and distributed. This report describes in detail the processes and computer programs used to catalog, store and distribute the ROSE seismic data. 3 references, 3 figures, 5 tables.
  • This report describes the Data Archive and Portal (DAP), a key capability of the U.S. Department of Energy's Atmosphere to Electron (A2e) initiative. The DAP Thrust Area Planning Group was organized to develop a plan for deploying this capability. Primarily, the report focuses on a distributed system--a DOE Wind Cloud--that functions as a repository for all A2e data. The Wind Cloud will be accessible via an open, easy-to-navigate user interface that facilitates community data access, interaction, and collaboration. DAP management will work with the community, industry, and international standards bodies to develop standards for wind data and to capture importantmore » characteristics of all data in the Wind Cloud.« less
  • Architectural Energy Corporation (AEC) has completed transcription of the hourly data collected at eleven sites within the Passive Solar Commercial Buildings Program. These data have been placed in an archive which will be administered by The American Institute of Architects Foundation in Washington, DC. The purpose of the archive is to establish a data base for the use of future researchers and building energy analysts. The format in which to access the data, and the process used by AEC to create the archive is documented. A list of publications and reports by AEC which are relevant to the archived datamore » is included.« less
