Office Hours with US Antarctic Data and Sample Repositories: USAP-DC, Polar Rock Repository and Marine and Geology Repository

Thursday, March 21st @ 2:00-3:30 pm EST (11:00-12:30 pm PST) 
Zoom registration (this will be a Zoom meeting, not a webinar) 

The expectations surrounding research data collected and produced by field projects have evolved (and continue to evolve!). Access to Antarctica has also changed and highlights the importance of opportunities for scientific discovery through our existing repositories. Born out of a WAIS community initiative in 2023, we welcome all to a virtual workshop to learn more about US Antarctic data and sample repositories, and what to expect when you want to post data, contribute samples, or access either. 

This workshop includes three NSF-funded data repositories and sample repositories: US Antarctic Program Data Center (hosted at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University), the Polar Rock Repository (associated with the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center at The Ohio State University) and the Marine and Geology Repository (at Oregon State University). Curators from these facilities will briefly cover the basics of what services they provide, how to deposit data and samples, and how access these resources that are currently available. The session will then be open to questions and discussion from online participants. We are excited to hear from you and answer your questions, so come to this workshop to learn the latest from us.
