Where should I deposit my data?

We recommend (request for PAGES activities) that all new data produced are deposited with an archive of the ICSU-World Data System (WDS). For paleodata, the primary WDS archives are:

NOAA/NCEI Paleoclimatology

PANGAEA

Neotoma Database

We also recommend the use of International Geo Sample Numbers (IGSNs), where appropriate. The IGSN is a persistent identifier that allows tracking a sample through its history.
