Abstract:

The Master Environmental Library MEL is a World Wide Web WWW based data discovery and ordering system providing access via a consistent single interface to oceanographic, terrain, atmospheric, and near space data bases and related tools residing in geographically distributed resource sites with arbitrary data base configurations and data formats. The key features of MEL are a consistent metadata contents standard for the data, a common user friendly interface, a generic orderdelivery system, and use of standard transfer formats. Existing data centers can become MEL resource sites without changing their current data management methods or architecture and retain complete control over release of data.
