India’s

National

Antarctic

Data

Centre

was

established

to

provide

a

national

facility

to

manage

and

disseminate

scientific

data

resulting

from

Indian

Antarctic

research

program

in

response

to

IPY

Policy

and

NCAOR

has

already

designed

a

web
-
based

Database

for

Metadata

as

per

the

format

specified

by

Joint

Committee

on

Antarctic

Data

Management

(JCADM)

and

started

its

preliminary

activity

of

collecting

Metadata

from

the

Scientific

members

of

the

XXVIII

Indian

Antarctic

Expedition

(
2008
-
2009
)
.

The

summarized

information

of

all

archived

data

(metadata)

has

been

prepared

by

scientists

to

offer

via

data

storage

of

the

‘INDIAN

NATIONAL

ANTARCTIC

Data

Centre


(INADC),

especially

during

the

last

four

years
.




The

compiled

metadata

comprises

observational

data

from

the

Arctic,

Antarctic

and

Southern

Ocean

regions

on

both

Short
-
term

and

long

term

basis
.




The

above

‘Science

MetaData

Base’

provided

by

INADC

has

tight

collaboration

(data

linkage

&

exchange)

with

the

Arctic

&

Antarctic

Master

Directories

in

the

Global

Change

Master

Directory

(AMDs/GCMD)
.




Metadata

relating

to

IPY

projects

taken

up

by

Indian

scientists

are

being

complied

for

hosting

on

IPY

Portal

in

GCMD
.





INADC

is

an

authoritative

platform

for

managing

and

sharing

data

of

Indian

polar

science
.

It

covers

data

from

a

broad

spectrum

of

disciplines,

including

polar

oceanography,

polar

solar
-
terrestrial

physics,

polar

glaciology,

polar

resources

and

environmental

science,

polar

biology

and

ecology,

and

polar

atmospheric

science,

etc
.

It

has

become

a

characteristic

center

of

“India’s

Data
-
sharing

Network

of

Earth

System

Science”
.

Polar

ice

a

carrier

of

global

climate

and

environmental

changes
,

plays

an

important

role

in

the

research

on

the

global

changes
.

Up

till

now

all

our

previous

Indian

Scientific

Expedition

to

Antarctica

(ISEA)

had

successfully

conducted

studies

on

glaciers

and


snow

ice

chemistry

from

Antarctic

&

Arctic



The

metadata

pertaining

to

these

studies

will

form

part

of

the

Data

Portal


In

addition

the

Data

Portal

will

host

atmospheric

data

from

Arctic

&

Antarctic

of

an

ultra

complimented

with

a

at

appropriate

speeds



NCAOR

is

one

of

the

participating

institutions

at

will

connect

to

the

National
