(ADCAR) Astrophysics Data Curation and Archival Research

ADCAR stands for Astrophysics Data Curation and Archival Research, and refers to the process of collecting, organizing, preserving, and making accessible astronomical data for use by the scientific community. This includes activities such as digitizing old observational data, standardizing and quality-checking new data, and developing software tools to manage and analyze the data. The goal of ADCAR is to ensure that astronomical data is preserved and accessible for future generations of researchers, and to enable the discovery of new scientific insights from the data.
