The Earth Science Academic Archive has been set up as part of the National Geoscience Data Centre (NGDC) and is the place for you to deposit the results of your Earth Science research.
The ESAA will be pleased to accept the results from NERC research and any other similar research projects to ensure their long term safe keeping and future use.
The Earth Science Academic Archive is responsible for:
Examples of types of data submitted to the ESAA:
Professional, advice management and long term secure storage of data and records. Increased awareness of your work and citation of datasets will give credit to your research and may bring further opportunities.
If you hold a NERC grant and are creating data you must deposit a copy of the data with a NERC Environmental Data Centre. The ESAA is the component of the NGDC that is responsible for helping NERC grant holders working in the earth science sector.
Search the ESAA for research reports, photographs, readsheet data, figures and diagrams, and 3D models.
