Oak Ridge National Laboratory Distributed Active Archive Center (ORNL DAAC)

The ORNL DAAC is a NASA data center that archives and distributes data on terrestrial biogeochemistry and ecological dynamics and is a member of the World Data System. The ORNL DAAC is operated by Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, home of the WDS International Program Office (WDS-IPO). The ORNL DAAC’s mission is to provide data services for a comprehensive archive of observations and models to support NASA’s Earth Science. The ORNL DAAC’s goals are to serve as the primary data repository for NASA’s Terrestrial Ecology program and Carbon Cycle Science and Ecosystems focus area, provide ground- and aircraft-based data to assess the accuracy and uncertainty of NASA’s Earth Science missions, work with NASA to develop best practices, tools, and training for data users and providers, and facilitate synthesis and analysis by providing and integrating diverse data.
