ESS-DIVE visited the Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) in July 2017 to meet with the CDIAC team, and several of the ESS projects. The trip provided an opportunity for the ESS-DIVE team to brief ORNL personnel on the archive, discuss the transition of CDIAC data and services in depth, and discuss needs and plans with ESS project teams at ORNL. The ESS-DIVE team also met with the DOE Office of Science, Technology and Innovation (OSTI) to discuss strategic partnership opportunities for improved citation and search of ESS-DIVE data and code.
ESS-DIVE was featured in a recent Berkeley Lab news article titled “New Data Archive aims to amplify Ecosystem Research”.
“As environmental scientists move towards understanding earth systems at greater resolution than ever before, it’s critical that they have access to needed data sets. Yet much of these data are not archived, publicly available, or collected in a standardized format, due to the multiple challenges of coordinating efforts across independent research groups and institutions worldwide. Now researchers at Berkeley Lab are taking action to address these challenges. Thanks to $3.6 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Office of Science, the Lab’s Computing Sciences and Earth & Environmental Sciences Area (EESA) are partnering on a three-year project to develop an archive that will serve as a repository for hundreds of DOE-funded research projects.”
