Chinese National Arctic & Antarctic Data Center(CN-NADC) is a national facility within the Polar research institute of China (PRIC), which is a research institute under the State Oceanic Administration (SOA) of China. CN-NADC was established in response to Chinese participation in the Article III.1.c of Antarctic Treaty System - (ATS — http://www.ats.aq) and Chinese Polar Data Policy(http://www.chinare.org.cn/standardDetail/?id=477).
CN-NADC serves as the only authorized institution in China to capture, standard manage and long-term preserve the data and samples information, and to provide sustainable polar data service. In 2003, CN-NADC became one of the nodes of ‘National Data Sharing Infrastructure of Earth Science’ (GEODATA,http://www.geodata.cn/), which’s one of the Platforms of the National Science and Technology Infrastructures (NSTI, http://www.escience.gov.cn/) supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and the Ministry of Finance of People’s Republic of China.
N-NADC uses Directory Interchange Fomrat -DIF metadata Standard. N-NADC submits metadata directory and information to Portal of Chinese Science and Technology Resource of NSTI and Antarctic Master Directory(AMD) of Global Change Master Directory (GCMD, http://gcmd.nasa.gov/). Since 2003, CN-NADC is a member of SC-ADM (Standing Committee on Antarctic Data Management, http://www.scar.org/data-products/scadm) and it is also a member of the SOOS-DISM (Southern Ocean Observing System, Data Management Sub-Committee) since 2013.
