The Advanced Cooperative Arctic Data and Information Service (ACADIS) team continues to support the data management needs of projects funded by NSF's Division of Polar Programs (PLR) Arctic Sciences Section with data submission, preservation, and sharing services. Recent ACADIS team activities focused on updating Principal Investigator support tools. The ACADIS team continuously improves the Gateway functionality to meet stakeholder and user needs. Highlighted improvements include:

  • A new phone number for contacting the ACADIS Community Support team. The line will be staffed Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time. To speak to a team member, call 720-443-1409.
  • An updated Data Management Plan template, which is available to scientists preparing NSF proposals. All such proposals require a Data Management Plan and this documentation will assist proposers in meeting NSF preparation requirements. ACADIS Community Support staff is available to discuss and review Data Management Plans for any upcoming proposal submissions.
  • The Arctic Data Explorer (ADE) has greatly increased in speed and efficiency. The ADE, a service of ACADIS, enables users to search for data sets across multiple repositories, currently including the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC); the ACADIS Gateway; the Earth Observing Laboratory/Computing, Data, and Software Facility; the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC); and the Norwegian Meteorological Institute. For examples of the Arctic data archived and available, go to the ADE website.
