About SEAD

SEAD is an NSF-sponsored project to create data services designed to meet the needs of sustainability science research. Sustainability science 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.

Include SEAD as the supporting mechanism for data management, sharing, and archiving in your Data Management Plan (DMP). Your SEAD-enabled DMP will increase your research efficiency, preserve your data for the long term, promote the visibility of your research, and help you meet your institutional and grant requirements.
