A potential dataset submitter is required to submit a "Dataset Submission Form" to the RDA for review as the first step before the formal decision can be made regarding the acceptance of the dataset for ingest at the RDA.

The information collected from the "Dataset Submission Form" constitutes a request for the RDA to archive and provide access to the data. Request acceptance is not guaranteed.

For further information, please see the Decision Workflow and Terms & Conditions tabs above.

Note: NCAR and UCP PIs should submit requests to archive data through the NCAR Data Submission Request System.
