NOAA recently reorganized the National Climatic Data Center, National Geophysical Data Center and National Oceanographic Data Center to form the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). A major objective of this reorganization has been the consolidation of disparate practices to establish a more cohesive approach to data stewardship. This presentation will detail how NCEI has engaged in an effort to define tiers of data stewardship and related services, consolidate data management planning systems, streamline and accelerate the accession of data into the digital archive, and build portal and other access technologies all to improve the discovery and usability of NOAA's billion dollar investment in environmental data and information.
