SCADM coordinates the Antarctic Data Management System (ADMS). The ADMS is composed of:

  • The Antarctic Master Directory (AMD)
  • The National Antarctic Data Centres (NADCs)

The NADCs are a link between Antarctic scientists and the AMD. Antarctic scientists are responsible for creating metadata, but are also the major beneficiaries of the system.
