1 Answer

Essential metadata are considered all metadata identified within the scope of the approved research program as well as any other information that will provide a contextual background on collected data that will permit future use of the data. The Federal database refers to national data repositories approved for receipt of specified formatted datasets; e.g., National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC), National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC).
