How To Archive Your Environmental Data With Us:

You can officially submit and archive your environmental data with NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information1 (NCEI). We provide data management services including acquisition, processing, quality control, archival, & distribution for environmental data. We keep an exact copy of any data that you submit, regardless of how it may be used in other processing steps. These data may be used well into the future, so submit as much information about your data as possible.

Submit Your Data

NCEI has two options for data archive depending on the data delivery frequency and data volume.

  1. Non-repeating or single delivery data less than 20 GB.
    Please use the Send2NCEI online tool which facilitates the submission of your environmental data files to our archive.
  2. Repeating or multiple delivery data or data greater than 20 GB.
    Submit request to the Advanced Tracking and Resource Tool for Archive Collections (ATRAC).
