Submit Ocean and Coastal Data: Log In
Send2NCEI (S2N) is an archiving tool that allows you to easily submit your data files and related documentation to the National Centers for Environmental Information for long term preservation, stewardship, and access. S2N will help you meet your requirements for data documentation, sharing, and archiving. The system allows us to process and archive your files in a more efficient manner compared to older methods, with the end product being a direct link to your archived data files. If this is your first time using S2N, set up an account and within minutes you will be well on your way to submitting your first data package!
This tool is focused on ocean and coastal data. We will expand this system beyond oceanographic data sets as we merge NOAA's data center functions under the new NCEI structure.

Public reporting burden for this information collection is estimated at 45 minutes per response that includes sufficient metadata to be useful for long term preservation and reuse. This response burden estimate includes time for reviewing instructions, gathering and maintaining necessary data, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. Send comments regarding these burden estimates or any other aspect of this collection of information, including suggestions for reducing this burden, to: NODC Data Officer, SSMC3 Fourth Floor E/OC, 1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910.
