SEAD enables easy management of the heterogeneous data that characterizes sustainability science, while dramatically lowering the effort required to preserve data for long-term use.
SEAD (Sustainable Environment Actionable Data) is an NSF-sponsored project to create data services designed to meet the needs of sustainability science research. Developing the means to sustain our society and planet is a central challenge of our time.
To make informed decisions in support of this goal, we must understand the coupled human and natural systems that make up our world. Sustainability research requires reliable cyberinfrastructure and an enhanced ability to manage, integrate, interpret, share, curate, and preserve data across a broad range of physical and social science disciplines.
SEAD offers data services that are powerful, easy to use, and tailored to the requirements of smaller projects.
