Data Stewardship Engineering Team (DSET)

About DSET

The NCAR Directorate created the Data Stewardship Engineering Team (DSET) to lead the organization’s efforts to provide enhanced, comprehensive digital data discovery and access. This community-driven infrastructure will support a user-focused, integrated system for the discovery and access of digital scientific assets that include datasets and supporting metadata, publications (text,images, audio, video), software applications, and model codes.

The DSET relies on cross-organization participation. The DSET membership is constituted by representatives from each NCAR lab, the NCAR Library, and UCP. A minimum of one representative has been named from each of these units by their director.
