Integrated Data Management System for Critical Zone Observatories

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

The objective of the project is to develop a comprehensive, integrated data management system for the Critical Zone Observatory (CZO) program, called CZOData. The project’s first goal is to support, empower, and broaden the impact of CZO science. The second is to maximize the return on investment of the CZO program by transforming capabilities to easily share, integrate,analyze, and preserve the wide range of multidisciplinary data generated within and across CZOs.
