Arctic Data Centre

The Arctic Data Centre (ADC) is a WMO Data Collection and Production Centre hosted by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute. It is a legacy of the International Polar Year (IPY) when the Norwegian Meteorological Institute coordinated operational data streams internationally and research data nationally. The national data management for IPY was organised through a project, DOKIPY, funded by the Research Council of Norway.
