DataONE Global data access and preservation network

DataONE (http://dataone.org) is a global data access and preservation network made possible by a $20 million award through the National Science Foundation DataNet program. ORNL will receive $700,000 over five years. With this effort, universities and government agencies are coming together to address the growing need for organizing and providing large amounts of highly diverse and interrelated but often incompatible scientific data, said Robert Cook, a distinguished scientist in ORNL's Environmental Sciences Division.

"The network will drive advanced research and data acquisition, storage, mining, integration and visualization for citizen scientists, researchers and decision makers," Cook said.

The resulting computing and processing cyber infrastructure will be made permanently available for use by the broader international science communities. Cook expects studies to range from research that sheds light on fundamental environmental processes to identifying environmental problems and potential solutions.

DataONE is led by the University of New Mexico and includes partner organizations across the United States, Europe, Africa, South America, Asia and Australia.

In East Tennessee, others participating in DataONE are the University of Tennessee and the U.S. Geological Survey in Oak Ridge, which represents the National Biological Information Infrastructure, a key partner in DataONE.
