The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), was founded in 1976 as an information hub with the main goal of providing support for research in the field of the frozen world, including glaciers, snow, ice, and frozen ground. The services of NSIDC involve scientific data management, data access tools, scientific research, and public education. The NSIDC scientists cooperate with data providers and users to keep past, current, and future data accessible online for the purpose of Earth and climate studies. The scientists also conduct research related to glaciers, snow, and more via remote sensing technology in order to better serve the scientific community. As a non-profit organization, the data online provides access for those people interested in related topics to gain information.
