Data is an important element in NSERC PermafrostNet research. The network will prototype reliable and useful data and knowledge products for stakeholders and integrate field data with simulation. This will be accomplished through the shared use of network resources including a platform for permafrost data science and simulation. This page provides:

  • Links to network-generated data as it becomes available
  • Information for network members on how to access computing resources
  • Access to the network data policy
  • Network guidelines and best-practices for permafrost data management
  • Other resources for permafrost data

Permafrost Data Science Platform (PDSP)

The PDSP provides computing resources and storage to NSERC PermafrostNet HQP and other staff at academic institutions that explicitly contribute to the milestones outlined for network projects. To get more information and to request access to the computing resources, request access to the Wiki page here (you must be logged into GitLab).

NSERC PermafrostNet Code Repository

NSERC PermafrostNet has a Gitlab group. If you are a student within NSERC PermafrostNet, this is a space to collaborate and share your code with others. Once you are logged into Gitlab, you can request access.

NSERC PermafrostNet Data Policy

The PermafrostNet data policy was developed based on community consultation at the 2019 PermafrostNet AGM and the 2020 data workshop. It describes a vision for permafrost data in Canada, and provides guidelines for how network-generated data and code should be handled to achieve this vision.

The data policy is being migrated to the NSERC PermafrostNet Gitlab. This will make it easier for members of the network community to discuss and adapt the policy throughout the lifespan of the network, and it will provide a traceable history of changes and the rationale behind those changes.
