Polar Data Center (PDC) in the National Institute of Polar Research (NIPR) is in charge of the management of Antarctic data involving Japanese programs.
The PDC has significant task responsible to archive and deliver several kinds of digital data, & their metadata obtained at bipolar region.
The original data processing is also performed by each research program and research section inside/outside NIPR.
The metadata are checked and entered both into NADC and AMD portals by the NADC coordinator and corresponding scientists.
Polar Data Center (PDC/NIPR):
The NADC coordinator is Prof. Takashi Yamanouchi ([email protected], meteorology), head of the PDC.
The PDC consists of seven scientists, one technician and five part-time staffs. The scientists are not working only for the center’s tasks in full-time, then several part-time staffs are processing data in consultation with the scientists.
There is no special engineer or scientist who has obliges to the science metadata management. Dr. Masaki Kanao ([email protected], seismology) is chiefly responsible for the task as a part of his works.
‘polar science data library system (POLARIS)’
World Data Center for Aurora (WDC/NIPR);
The World Data Center (WDC) for Aurora studies also belongs to the PDC, which was established in 1981 following a recommendation by the WDC panel of the ICSU.
The WDC for Aurora studies is responsible for data archiving and dissemination of,
- all-sky camera observations, visual observations,
- other optical observations (such as TV and photometric observations),
- auroral image and particle observations from satellites,
- geomagnetic observations, and observations of upper atmosphere
phenomena associated with aurora such as ULF, VLF and CNA activities.
The Center\'s public website can be found at http://polaris.nipr.ac.jp/~aurora/.
Dr. Kadokura ([email protected]) is a chief scientist for the WDC/PDC.
The guideline of data policy in the PDC was documented in February 2007, on the basis of requirements for setting up NADC as recommended by JCADM.
The ‘Science MetaData Base’ provided by POLARIS/PDC/NIPR has tight collaboration (data linkage & exchange) with the Arctic & Antarctic Master Directories in the Global Change Master Directory (AMDs/GCMD).
PDC is coordinating the development of the Japanese related metadata to offer to the AMDs. The number of data set descriptions (DIFs) is 148 at moment in August 2009 (exclude DIFs provided by JAXA).
