As the primary climate-change data and information analysis center of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), includes the World Data Center for Atmospheric Trace Gases. It data holdings comprise:
CDIAC is located at DOE's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Tennessee.
The International Soil Carbon Network (ISCN) is a scientific community devoted to the advancement of soil carbon research. The Network coordinates independent soil research and monitoring efforts in the United States and internationally. ISCN members contribute to a community-driven soil carbon database and use available data to prepare scientific papers and large-scale syntheses.
Overarching these goals is the need for a spatially explicit approach, since measurements of soil C storage, turnover, and vulnerability all vary at spatial scales from several meters to thousands of kilometers, as well as across different depths within an individual soil profile. In addition to database development, modeling, and mapping, the Network also facilitates topical workshops, peer-reviewed publication, and presentations at professional conferences.
Led by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Research.gov improves customer service for the research community by increasing access to information and services while streamlining and standardizing business processes among partner agencies. Research.gov is also a transparent source for information about federal research spending and outcomes for the general public.
