Research project DataARC will produce online tools and infrastructure to enable researchers from a broad range of disciplines to study human ecodynamics in the North Atlantic context, by linking a range of international databases across a range of research fields.
Research on the interactions between Arctic environments and people requires linking data from over thousands of square km, hundreds of years, and multiple disciplines, from climatology to archaeology to the humanities. Datasets often exist to help address these questions, but are difficult to find, make interoperable, and analyze and visualize. Investing in comprehensive online cyberinfrastructure facilitates the linking collaborators and data from the natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities, and thus opportunities for a holistic approach to understanding the rapid social and environmental changes that occurred in the past.
