The U.S. Antarctic Program Data Center (USAP-DC) supports investigators funded by the National Science Foundation in documenting, preserving, and disseminating their research results. We register datasets in the Antarctic Master Directory (AMD) to comply with the Antarctic Treaty; facilitate submission of datasets to long-term archives; and represent the U.S. in Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) activities. USAP-DC is a member of the Interdisciplinary Earth Data Alliance (IEDA) and the Antarctic and Arctic Data Consortium (A2DC). As of 2016, USAP-DC is partnered with the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) to manage glaciology data for the US Antarctic Program.

Map shows datasets registered with the USAP-DC. Dots show the locations of the centroid of the geographic bounding box for each data set or the point locations for datasets from single sites (e.g. ice cores). Click on centroid locations to view the full bounding box as provided by the contributing scientists as well as more information about the datasets.
