Instructions for browsing and uploading GeoMicroBio Cluster data.

The Geomicrobiology Cluster uses the structure provided by the SOils DAta Harmonization (SoDaH) framework to collect and align the soil microbial and environmental datasets generated from this cluster.

The SoDaH database framework is an open-access resource and provides efficient tools for data synthesis, quality control, analysis and visualization. Time series data measured from soil sensors and eddy covariance will be deposited into the Environmental Data Initiative (EDI).

How to Submit GeoMicroBiology Cluster Data

The SoDaH framework requires a metadata template to provide analyte and metadata information for each unique dataset. The metadata template and instructions to complete it appropriately will be available (to be posted) from the website for researchers to prepare their datasets for synthesis. Researchers will then submit the metadata template file and the associated dataset to Derek Pierson (email hidden; JavaScript is required) who will upload the data into the database.

How to Browse GeoMicroBiology Data

The cluster database will be available to researchers online once data has been collected. Data will be provided using the web application provided by the SoDaH framework (example). EDI also provided access to archived data online.
