Geology & Earth Science: Data Management & Repositories

A guide for doing research in geology and Earth science.

What are Data Repositories?

For purposes of this page, data repositories are sites where researchers can store, retrieve, and, most importantly, share their raw research data. They are not to be confused with data collections, in which editors assemble and organize data from a variety of sources (e.g. Earth Science handbooks, etc.).

For more information on data management for researchers, see the Research Data Management guide.
