Initiative Type: Infrastructures

Belém Statement Area: Ocean Observation, Polar Research

Initiative Location: United States of America

Time Frame: Ongoing


The Interdisciplinary Earth Data Alliance (IEDA) is a community-based facility that serves to support, sustain, and advance the geosciences by providing data services for observational Geoscience data from the Ocean, Earth, and Polar Sciences. IEDA welcomes and encourages investigators to contribute their data to the IEDA collections so that the data can be discovered and reused by a diverse community now and in the future. The IEDA collections are: EarthChem, Geochron, System for Earth Sample Registration (SESAR), Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS), and USAP Data Center. Meta-Search provided on the portal through IEDA Data Browser .
