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.
