A pilot project of the Enabling FAIR Data Project led by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in partnership with DataCite and the Earth, space and environment sciences community, can help you find an appropriate repository to deposit your research data.
The Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS) provides a suite of tools and services for free public access to marine geoscience research data acquired throughout the global oceans and adjoining continental margins.
Presented is a three part training module for student researchers to learn sample collection, processing, and management protocol including proper sample documentation, registration, and tracking in a small academic department collaborative research setting.

This module describes the steps for collecting, processing and managing soil cores sampled manually by augering. The purpose is to provide a protocol for collecting, processing and managing this type of physical samples to facilitate future discovery and use, including assigning International Geosample Numbers (IGSN).

IEDA Data Management Plan (DMP) Tool: Provides an easy way to generate a DMP for inclusion in NSF proposals. The DMP Tool is designed to minimize the impact of creating a DMP, ensures that all relevant and required information is captured, and generates a well-formatted PDF that clearly presents relevant information to reviewers.
COPDESS: The Coalition for Publishing Data in the Earth and Space Sciences (COPDESS) connects Earth and space science publishers and data facilities to help translate the aspirations of open, available, and useful data from policy into practice.
DataONE: A community driven project providing access to data across multiple member repositories, supporting enhanced search and discovery of Earth and environmental data. DataONE promotes best practices in data management through responsive educational resources and materials
EarthCube: initiated by NSF in 2011 to transform geoscience research by developing cyberinfrastructure to improve access, sharing, visualization, and analysis of all forms of geosciences data and related resources.
IEDA: IEDA systems serve as primary community data collections for global geochemistry and marine geoscience research and support the preservation, discovery, retrieval, and analysis of a wide range of observational field and analytical data types.
iSamples: The iSamples Research Coordination Network (RCN) seeks to advance the use of innovative cyberinfrastructure to connect physical samples and sample collections across the Earth Sciences with digital data infrastructures to revolutionize their utility for science.
