Research Data Archive
The Research Data Archive (RDA) contains a large, diverse collection of meteorological and oceanographic observations, operational and reanalysis model outputs, and remote sensing data sets to support atmospheric and geosciences research.
Climate Data Gateway
The Climate Data Gateway integrates supercomputers with large-scale data and analysis servers located at numerous national labs and research centers to create a powerful environment for next-generation climate research.
Geoscience Data Exchange
The mission of the Geoscience Data Exchange (GDEX) is to provide data preservation and FAIR, public access to researcher and selected NSF facility produced data products related to the Earth and its atmosphere, oceans, and space environment. GDEX fulfills federal and scientific publication requirements for open data access.
CMIP Analysis Platform
Among the data services CISL provides is the CMIP Analysis Platform, which gives researchers convenient access to Coupled Model Intercomparison Project climate data for their work on NCAR's analysis and visualization systems.
Digital Asset Services Hub
The Digital Asset Services Hub (DASH) provides services for open-access digital assets from NCAR labs and UCAR Community Programs (UCP) members, including support, engagement and training resources for managing, sharing and working with data sets, publications, software and models.
