About ADS

Introduction: The Encouragement of Arctic Research
The Arctic Data archive System (ADS) collects observation data and modeling products obtained by various Japanese research projects and gives researchers to access the results. By centrally managing a wide variety of Arctic observation data, we promote the use of data across multiple disciplines. Researchers use these integrated databases to clarify the mechanisms of environmental change in the atmosphere, ocean, land-surface and cryosphere. The ADS will provide an opportunity of collaboration between modelers and field scientists, can be expected.
Data to be registered
Observation data and data from sample analysis obtained in the ArCS Project
Observation data and data from sample analysis obtained in the GRENE Arctic Climate Change Research Project
Observation data and data from sample analysis obtained in the Antarctic Project
Observation data and sample analysis data from other Japanese projects
Remote sensing data observed by Radar or Satellite
Reanalysis data derived from observation data (secondary products)
Calculated data from numerical model or simulation
In some cases only the metadata is registered and the metadata contains a link to the observation data
