About

The IEDA data facility’s mission is to support, sustain, and advance the geosciences by providing data services for observational geoscience data from the Ocean, Earth, and Polar Sciences.

IEDA systems serve as primary community data collections for global geochemistry and marine geoscience research and support the preservation, discovery, retrieval, and analysis of a wide range of observational field and analytical data types. Our tools and services are designed to facilitate data discovery and reuse for focused disciplinary research and to support interdisciplinary research and data integration.

Our team of domain scientists, geoinformaticists and developers share a passion for the management and stewardship of earth science data. With decades of combined experience with data acquisition, management, system design, and scientific analysis our team aspires to bridge the gap between scientists and data that can support new and innovative discoveries. We work closely with our user communities to ensure that we continually optimize our tools and services to meet their needs. We also actively participate in the community of data stewards and cyberinfrastructure specialists to ensure that our systems meet evolving standards for interoperability and information sharing. We encourage an open and responsive dialog with our community of stakeholders and always welcome feedback.

IEDA is funded by the US National Science Foundation through a Cooperative Agreement.
