The Arctic data portal website is part of the LABEX L-IPSL project and its aim is present all the different projects and studies involved with Arctic observations within the IPSL or linked to it. This portal will facilitate the knowledge of the different types of research carried out at IPSL focused on the Arctic regions and also it will act as a link to other projects.

The Arctic data portal is a database of metadata that describes and provides access to diverse data-sets developed by different groups from the IPSL doing research on the Arctic. The metadata templates follow the standard international format. The data-sets encompass a wide range of scientific data from physical properties of clouds and aerosols, to ocean vertical profiles and wind vectors. This tool is available to the public and allows searching data using a geographical distribution tool or by key words.
