The data management component of the Global Change Research Program provides the scientific interface through which technical information can be obtained, evaluated, quality-assured, documented, and distributed; the exchange of data can be promoted and facilitated; and high-quality analyses of complex data can be performed to synthesize information used in evaluating environmental issues. Specific objectives of the information and integration component include promotion of networking among members of the global-change community, preparation of technical and informational reports, and sponsorship of scientific conferences. The Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC) produces quality-assured and fully documented numeric data and provides access to current global change data and information. CDIAC distributes technical publications and produces newsletters. CDIAC also responds to inquiries from an audience representing broad interests for information on a wide variety of global-change topics.
