An extensive collection of many Antarctic glaciological parameters is available for the polar science community upon request. Funded by the National Science Foundation's Office of Polar Programs, The Antarctic Glaciological Data Center (AGDC) at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) archives and distributes Antarctic glaciological and cryospheric system data collected by the U.S. Antarctic Program. AGDC facilitates data exchange among Principal Investigators, preserves recently collected data useful to future research, gathers data sets from past research, and compiles continent-wide information useful for modeling and field work planning. Data sets are available via our web site, http://nsidc.org/agdc/ . From here, users can access extensive documentation, citation information, locator maps, derived images and references, and the numerical data. More than 50 Antarctic scientists have contributed data to the archive. We encourage you to submit your data to the AGDC.|
NSIDC encourages users of data distributed by the AGDC to cite original sources for their contributions whenever possible. Most catalog pages provide a recommended citation format.
