No data archives in most research institutes
Very few person who are dealing with scientific data host the university degree, most of them have middle or high school certificates only
During the 20 years from 1980 – 2000 - Scientific Data is important resources
After 2000 - Scientific Data Policy Review – Scientific Data is not only the organizational resources, but the public goods.
After 2000 – Data archived, more and more data public available
Example:COEP ( Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period) is one of the most productive information infrastructure in AsiaFrom Prof. Toshio Koike, University of Tokyo
Three Unique Capabilities
Convergence of Observations A Prototype of the Global Water Cycle Observation System of Systems
Nine Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) Centers, NCEP, ECPC,UKMO, ECMWF, JMA, CPTEC, BoM, NCMWF, and CMC, and two Data Assimilation Centers, NASA/GMAO, NASA/GLDAS provide model outputs to CEOP, and CEOP offers a globally consistent data sets for model validation and calibration.
Three types model outputs are offered by NWP Centers
Community of Expertise: Education
Global Alliance for Enhancing Access to and Application of Scientific Data in Developing Countries (e-SDDC)
The UN GAID e-SDDC in East Asia
Lead Organization: Chinese Academy of Sciences
e-SDDC Mission: Bridging research, education, and policy on scientific data in developing countries under the UN GAID framework, and creating a forum or platform for dialogue for all stakeholders to: (1) identify and evaluate different mechanisms and policies for promoting greater access to and use of digital S&T resources for meeting the needs of developing countries in policy reform in scientific data management and applications; and (2) help build a distributed and decentralized network of networks in scientific data andinformation resources for innovative research, sustainable development, and better life in the developing world.
Goals for the Longer Term: To bridge scientific research, education, and policy decision making in order to find tailored solutions for problems faced in developing countries; to enhance the potential advantages of ICTs in their critical accelerator role for the applications of scientific data and information for socioeconomic development and scientific innovation; and to apply these digital resources to the UN Millennium Development Goals in developing countries.
Strategy for Implementation:Networking –OpenAccess – Innovation - Development
Action Plan: Action Line One – Building the Think Tank NetworkAction Line Two – Scientific Data Center NetworkAction Line Three - Technology Transfer and Assistance NetworkAction Line Four – Training and Online Teaching NetworkAction Line Five – Network on Scientific Data Dimensions of Disaster Mitigation, Poverty Reduction and Public Health

There are two large earthquakes zones in the world, the subduction and great seismic zones surrounding Pacific Ocean; and great seismic zones between India and Euro-Asia Plates.
Every year, about 18-20 earthquakes with magnitude over 7.0 will occur in whole of the world, 80-90％ of them distribute in Pacific Region and 1-2 will cause serious casualty and direct economic losses. Provided by Dr. Qu Guosheng, 7 May 2007
