NASA's Global Change Master Directory (GCMD) is an online card catalog of data sets covering just about every scientific area of global change research. The website includes downloadable datasets, models and materials for various aspects of global change and the earth system. Data is grouped by category, including atmospheric, oceanic, geologic and biologic data. Examples of available data are global earthquake data, the carbon dioxide record from the Mauna Loa Observatory and monthly global surface temperature. There are also lists of links to more data from a variety of sources.
Part of the Cutting Edge collection. The NAGT/DLESE On the Cutting Edge project helps geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
