Abstract

This talk describes our efforts to identify, catalogue, acquire, and curate a large data repository for hydrologic, climatologic, and soils data for Alaska. This database, called Imiq, is the result of a five-year long effort, which has culminated in a standalone collection of some 400 million data points as well as an online data portal serving value added products and access to individual data streams. The authors will show potential end users what type of products are available in Imiq to support their own research, as well as how to contribute data to the database. Finally, examples of research results using the database will be shown.
