SCADM coordinates the Antarctic Data Management System (ADMS). The ADMS is composed of:

  • The Antarctic Master Directory (AMD)
  • The National Antarctic Data Centres (NADCs)

The NADCs are a link between Antarctic scientists and the AMD. Antarctic scientists are responsible for creating metadata, but are also the major beneficiaries of the system.

What is a National Antarctic Data Centre?

A National Antarctic Data Centre (NADC) is a focal point for Antarctic data. Countries may establish their own National Antarctic Data Centres (NADCs), or designate an existing institution as their NADC. Some NADCs have data management policies in place. Recruitment of National Antarctic Data Centres is a key responsibility of SCADM.

Guidelines on setting up a NADC and entering metadata into the Antarctic Master Directory (AMD) are available on request.

 

Details of publications by SCADM will be added as they become available.
