Data repositories and directories

Repositories are online resources that allow researchers to place their data in a secure location in order to enhance sharing and to meet mandates of granting agencies. Both repositories and directories are good resources for locating data sets. Many repositories are discipline-specific, though some generalist repositories are also available. This list includes both data repositories and lists of repositories related to Geology and the Earth Sciences.
