Scientific Computing System Data Assembly Center

The Scientific Computing System Data Assembly Center (SCS-DAC) has been tasked with managing the flow of SCS data from the vessel to NCEI following each project (cruise). The data assembly center at FSU provides a single point of contact for vessel operators and technicians and act as a liaison with NCEI. The SCS-DAC will ensure the timeliness of data delivery from the end of project until the data has been published and is made available for public download. The SCS-DAC will also develop an automated assessment of each data package and assign each dataset a completeness rating, ensuring that the data is collected correctly from the various scientific instruments on board the NOAA fleet. An Issue Tracking System (ITS) will help land-based data quality analysts track and find solutions to problems regarding data collection and submission.
