SESYNC is committed to public dissemination of data and to open-source software development and distribution. When synthesis projects result in the creation of original datasets or databases, new software or web tools, analysis or model code, SESYNC will work with science teams to locate appropriate repositories and long-term storage for these resources. See below for a list of datasets, software tools, and computationally-oriented publications from on-going and completed SESYNC-supported projects:
