Over the past 27 years, the National Center for Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) has provided complete life-cycle scientific data management including research and operational data collection, data processing, quality assurance/control, and long-term data archival, access, and stewardship for national and international field projects. Recently, legacy observational research projects and datasets have been added to the NCAR/EOL data archive from campaigns held from the 1960s - 1990s.  With the complementary legacy data additions, the NCAR/EOL data archive has grown to include over 500 field projects and nearly 12,000 datasets.This town hall will provide an opportunity for the scientific community to provide input to NCAR/EOL on current and future needs for field project data management, discovery, and access. This input will be used to inform our data services improvement and development plan. Input is needed from all stakeholders including modelers, observationalists, and current and potential future users of the NCAR/EOL data archive.
