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.
