Oak Ridge National Laboratory DAAC (ORNL DAAC)
Oak Ridge National Laboratory Distributed Active Archive Center
The ORNL DAAC is located at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The ORNL DAAC was established in 1993 and is under an interagency agreement between NASA and the Department of Energy.
The ORNL DAAC provides data and information relevant to biogeochemical dynamics, ecological data, and environmental processes, critical for understanding the dynamics relating the biological, geological, and chemical components of Earth’s environment. These dynamics are influenced by interactions between organisms and their physical surroundings, including soils, sediments, water, rocks, and air. ORNL DAAC archives contain data from a large number of field campaigns, climate, vegetation, and soil collections, satellite validation campaigns, and model products. MODIS land product subsets are also provided.
