Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


All data submitted to the U.S. Department of Energy's Geothermal Data Repository (GDR) is eventually made public. The metadata for these data submissions is searchable in multiple data catalogs, including the GDR catalog and the data catalog on Because it is a node on the National Geothermal Data System (NGDS), all data on the GDR are also discoverable through both the regular Identifier (DOI), and as a byproduct of this assignment, these submissions are automatically registered in the Office of Science and Technical Information (OSTI) DataCite catalog. From there, these data are federated to additional sites both domestic and international, including and This paper will explore in detail the wide reach of data submitted to the GDR from and how this exposure can dramatically increase the utility of submitted data.
