Title:Repository Profiles for Atmospheric and Climate Sciences: Capabilities and Trends in Data Services
Author(s):Hou, Chung-Yi; Thompson, Cheryl A.; Palmer, Carole L.

Abstract:As digital research data proliferate and expectations for open access escalate, the landscape of data repositories is becoming more complex. For example, DataBibcurrently identifies 980 data repositories across the disciplines, with 117 categorized under Geosciences. In atmospheric and climate sciences, there are great expectations for the integration and reuse of data for advancing science. To realize this potential, resources are needed that explicate the range of repository options available for locating and depositing open data, their conditions of access and use, and the services and tools they provide. This study profiled 38 open digital repositories in the atmospheric and climate sciences, analyzing each on 55 criteria through content analysis of their websites. The results provide a systematic way to assess and compare capabilities, services, and institutional characteristics, and identify trends across repositories.
