THE OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY (ORNL) DISTRIBUTED ACTIVE ARCHIVE CENTER (DAAC)
Data Center Description
The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) for Biogeochemical Dynamics is operated by the ORNL Environmental Sciences Division (ESD) as part of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Earth Science Enterprise (ESE) program. The ORNL DAAC archives data and model products related to biogeochemical dynamics which are the result of the interactions between the biological, geological, and chemical components of the Earth's environment.
As components of the Earth Observing System (EOS) Data Information System (EOSDIS), DAACs generate EOS standard data products and carry out NASA's responsibilities for data archival, distribution, and management. Many of these sites also carry related data products that pre-date EOS. DAACs and affiliated data centers have home pages and FTP sites for transfer of information and data.
