Background of the Research

"Open Science" is becoming increasingly important. In Open Science, the outcomes of research supported by public funding, including scientific theses, reports, data, and methods, are made available to the public, and these published outcomes also promote new scientific knowledge creation and innovation. The Arctic environment is composed of the atmosphere, ocean, land, and human society, and changes in each of these areas are intertwined in a complex manner. Fully understanding environmental changes in the Arctic region is very difficult, but many research have been carried out in these respective fields. Their scientific achievements include many sets of observation data and satellite data, as well as simulation data, and these are the "Big Data" of Arctic research. Promoting Open Science including this Big Data can be expected to contribute to new interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation.

Overview of the Research

The Arctic Data archive System (ADS) aims to develop an Open Science infrastructure for Arctic research, and will promote the mutual distribution of the Big Data of Arctic research. Furthermore, ADS will develop analysis and visualization Web services for integrated Big Data, and intends to generate new value with Big Data.

Concepts of data distribution and international cooperation in ADS
