Streamlining Data Discovery in the Arctic
Tuesday, December 11th, from 10:30-11:30 (AGU Central Theater, Booth 1018)
The Arctic data community is working to streamline data archiving and discoverability for the Arctic research community through a variety of initiatives, including the NSF Arctic Data Center, DataONE, and the recently established Polar Federated Search Working Group (POLDER). Come learn about advances in our ability to discover and preserve Arctic data, and join in the discussion to share ways we can further support Arctic research, data management, and data preservation.
How to Reproducibly Preserve your Science
Thursday, December 13th, from 13:30-14:30 (AGU Central Theater, Booth 1018)
Being able to reproducibly preserve your science requires creating quality metadata. We’ll teach the basics for writing a quality metadata record to fulfill funder requirements, uphold community best practices, and benefit the research community (and yourself) both now and into the future. The Arctic Data Center’s metadata editor will be used to demo a quality metadata record submission.
