Metadata and Preservation in Geosciences: Issues at Scale

Summary
As the environment and climate have increasing impact on the economic  sustainability of
our country, scientists are being compelled through  their own interest or through
directives from funding agencies to  share the results of their research, which often
take the form of  collections of data.  Sharing collections, particularly at scale where 
the volumes are large, introduces numerous challenges that we discuss  in the context of
our research and additional challenges that we point  out as unaddressed problems.  We
discuss in particular provenance  collection with a system independent collection tool,
Karma, the XMC  Cat application schema friendly metadata catalog, and the integration  of
data streams into a workflow composer, XBaya.   We conclude with a  discussion of the
goals of the Data to Insight Center within the   Pervasive Technologies Institute of
which the Center for Data and  Search Informatics and the Digital Library Program have a
role.
