The USAP-DC provides a research data repository and Project Catalog for the NSF funded USAP community. USAP-DC offers web interfaces for finding and contributing datasets and registering project information from U.S.-funded research programs in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. We assist U.S. investigators in meeting their obligations under OPP Data Requirements and the Antarctic Program solicitation, which includes both
1) submission of your dataset for long-term archiving and public access and
2) registration of your project with USAP-DC and the Antarctic Metadata Directory (AMD).
Creating a catalog entry with the AMD is handled by USAP-DC using your project information.

USAP-DC serves as a National Antarctic Data Centre (NADC) in the framework of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), and represents the U.S. at annual meetings of the SCAR Standing Committee on Antarctic Data Management.

An overview of USAP-DC services is also available on our Webinars page.
