Welcome to the NCEAS Data Repository. This repository contains information 
49
about the research data sets collected and collated within or under the 
50
auspices of NCEAS' funded activities.  Some of the data are synthetic
51
data sources that originated from the efforts of many contributors, while
52
others might have originated from a single investigator.  Credit for the
53
datasets in this repository goes to the investigators who collected the data,
54
and also to the NCEAS working groups and scientists who compiled the data
55
for synthetic purposes. See each data package for a list of the people and
56
institutions involved.

59
<p>Data documentation can be contributed to the repository in several ways,
60
each with its own strengths.  The 
61
<a href="@cgi-prefix@/register-dataset.cgi?cfg=nceas">Register New Dataset</a>
62
web form is a simple way to get started with providing metadata about the
63
existence of a dataset.  But it can not be used for fully documenting the
64
data, nor can you upload the data objects themselves through this form.
65
For a more complete description of data, we recommend the
66
<a href="http://knb.ecoinformatics.org/morphoportal.jsp" target="_top">Morpho</a> 
67
software application which is fully compatible with this repository.

      The repository search system is used to locate data sets of interest
76
      by searching through existing registered data sets.  
77
      Presently the search covers all fields, including
78
      author, title, abstract, keywords, and other documentation
79
      for each dataset.  (More sophisticated search capabilities, 
80
      including boolean field searches, will be available in future.)

      The registration page is used to submit information about a <b>new</b>
87
      data set associated with NCEAS research.  The documentation about the
88
      data set will be reviewed and then submitted to the Repository.
