Abstract The CUAHSI Water Data Center (WDC) is community governed, NSF funded facility that enables data access and publication through a web services oriented architecture. The WDC maintains the largest catalog of time series water data in the world, which includes data sources that range from global to local coverage and include data sets that describe climate, streams, and soil. This session will touch upon a number of functions of the WDC including:
• How can I use WDC services to fulfill NSF Data Management requirements?
• What data are available through the WDC?
• How can I access data?
• How can I write custom software that accesses data published with the WDC?
Participants should anticipate this information to be presented through slides and should expect to leave with a comprehensive understanding of the research support services offered by the WDC.
