Standing Committee on Antarctic Data Management

Publications, links and data of interest to the Antarctic data community.

+ Publications

Note: This list also includes publications of the Joint Committee on Antarctic Data Management (JCADM), which was in place prior to SCADM.

+ Data

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.

For more information, visit the AMDS page

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.

Note: This list also includes publications of the Joint Committee on Antarctic Data Management (JCADM), which was in place prior to SCADM.
