From the Sierra Nevada Global Change Observatory we are striving to put into value he data sets obtained in Sierra Nevada in order to improve the scientific knowledge of its biodiversity and ecosystems.

We have years of experience in the documentation of environmental information (metadata) according to recognized standards, which allows the connection with other international initiatives related to the long-term ecological study of global change and its effects on biodiversity (LIFE Adaptamed, LTER Europe, LifeWatch, GBIF, etc.).

As a result, we have published numerous data sets and articles (data papers) that describe them in depth, providing access and possibility of reuse of the data to the rest of the scientific community and the public at large.

Our data management philosophy is based on the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) principles, which promote that data, in addition to being accessible, must be well documented so that it can be reused, thus increasing its original value.

  • Findable: integrated data and metadata with a unique and persistent identifier assigned, so that they can be found by the scientific community and other users.
  • Accessible: open and free access to data and metadata.
  • Interoperable: use of standards to enable the exchange of data and metadata 
  • Reusable: complete description of the origin of the data and conditions for its reuse.
