The Polar Data Center (PDC) manages the Science Database among other repositories for Japanese polar research. The Science Database is the destination repository for all Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE) data as well as the Japanese contribution to the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007-2008. Metadata are in English and Japanese, and metadata records are shared with the Global Change Master Directory.
International Arctic Systems for Observing the Atmosphere (IASOA) provides and collects multi-year continuous data on atmospheric conditions in the Arctic. International Polar Year (IPY) maintains partnerships with Arctic observatories from Sweden, Canada, United States, Russia, Norway, Finland, and Greenland. Each IASOA observatory features extensive suites of co-located, research grade active, passive and in-situ observing systems. Atmospheric characteristics of interest are standard meteorology, greenhouse gases, atmospheric radiation, clouds, pollutants, chemistry, aerosols, and surface energy balances. IASOA operates within boundaries defined by (1) the Arctic (2) the atmosphere (3) the ground-based vantage point (4) data generated by instrument systems and (5) multi-year continuous records to support climate studies.
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 — and Chinese Polar Data Policy( 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,, which’s one of the Platforms of the National Science and Technology Infrastructures (NSTI, supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and the Ministry of Finance of People’s Republic of China.
Greenland Environmental Observatory (GEOSummit) provides long term year round data on core atmospheric measurements, spatial phenomena, ice sheets, and the Arctic Environment. These data are available to researchers through the National Science Foundation's Science Coordination Office (SCO) which coordinates all research at GEOSummit. Currently there is not a central platform for multi-collaborator data distribution. For specific information related to research it is recommended to contact investigators directly.
The WDC has a FTP-server to distribute the PCN index derived from the geomagnetic observatory Qaanaaq (THL) and the Kp-index data products derived at the geomagnetic observatory Niemegk (NGK). The WDC is also holding extensive archives of magnetograms and other geomagnetic observatory data products that predate the introduction of digital data recording. The material is in analogue form such as film or microfiche. The Polar Cap index (abbreviation PC index) consists of the Polar Cap North (PCN) and the Polar Cap South (PCS) index, which are derived from magnetic measurements taken at the geomagnetic observatories Qaanaaq (THL, Greenland, +85o magnetic latitude) and Vostok (VOS, Antarctica, -83o magnetic latitude), respectively. The idea behind these indices is to estimate the intensity of anti-sunward plasma convection in the polar caps. This convection is associated with electric Hall currents and consequent magnetic field variations perpendicular to the antisunward plasma flow (and related Hall current) which can be monitored at the Qaanaaq and Vostok magnetic observatories. PC aims at monitoring the energy input from solar wind to the magnetosphere (loading activity). The index is constructed in such a way that it has a linear relationship with the merging Electric Field at the magnetopause; consequently PC is given in units of mV/m as for the electric field. In August 2013, the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA) endorsed the PC index. The endorsed PC index is accessible at or through WDC Copenhagen.
WDC for STP, Moscow collects, stores, exchanges with other WDCs, disseminates the publications, sends upon requests data on the following Solar-Terrestrial Physics disciplines: Solar Activity and Interplanetary Medium, Cosmic Rays, Ionospheric Phenomena, Geomagnetic Variations.
The GTN-P database is an object-related database open for a diverse range of data. Because of the complexity of the PAGE21 project, data provided in the GTN-P management system are extremely diverse, ranging from active-layer thickness measurements once per year to flux measurement every second and everthing else in between. The data can be assigned to two broad categories: Quantitative data which is all data that can be measured numerically. Quantitative data comprise all in situ measurements, i.e. permafrost temperatures and active layer thickness (mechanical probing, frost/thaw tubes, soil temperature profiles). Qualitative data (knowledge products) are observations not based on measurements, such as observations on soils, vegetation, relief, etc.
The NCMA maintains the largest and most diverse collection of publically available marine algal strains in the world. The algal strains in the collection have been obtained from all over the world, from polar to tropical waters, marine, freshwater, brackish, and hyper-saline environments. New strains (50 - 100 per year) are added largely through the accession of strains deposited by scientists in the community. A stringent accession policy is required to help populate the collection with a diverse range of strains.
The World Data Centre for Meteorology is located in Obninsk in the All-Russian Research Institute of Hydrometeorological Information World Data Centre (RIHMI-WDC). The task of the Centre is to collect and disseminate meteorological data and products worldwide and especially in Russia. The information basis of the Centre is updated on regular basis from various sources including the bilateral data exchange with the World Data Centre for Meteorology in Ashville, North Carolina, USA. The data holdings of WDC – Rockets, Satellites and Earth Rotation (WDC RSER) have become, in December 2015, part of the collection of WDC – Meteorology, Obninsk
Antarctic marine and terrestrial biodiversity data is widely scattered, patchy and often not readily accessible. In many cases the data is in danger of being irretrievably lost. establishes and supports a distributed system of interoperable databases, giving easy access through a single internet portal to a set of resources relevant to research, conservation and management pertaining to Antarctic biodiversity. provides access to both marine and terrestrial Antarctic biodiversity data.
World Data Center for Solid Earth Physics collects, stores, and disseminates a wide range of data on solid Earth physics disciplines: Seismology, Gravimetry, Heat Flow, Magnetic Measurements (main magnetic field), Archeo- & Paleomagnetism, Recent Movements. These data are used as the basis for fundamental and applied scientific researches and education. The WDC for SEP invites scientists, institutions and other authors and data generators to contribute data to our Center in order to make data more widely available to the scientific community and to safe them.
US Department of Energy’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Data Center is a long-term archive and distribution facility for various ground-based, aerial and model data products in support of atmospheric and climate research. ARM facility currently operates over 400 instruments at various observatories ( ARM Data Center (ADC) Archive currently holds over 11,000 data products with a total holding of over 1.5 petabytes of data that dates back to 1993, these include data from instruments, value added products, model outputs, field campaign and PI contributed data. The data center archive also includes data collected by ARM from related program (e.g., external data such as NASA satellite).
