This Global Change Master Directory (GCMD) bookmark describes the free,
on-line directory service that offers a comprehensive source of information
about Earth science, environmental, climate, and global change data holdings
available to the worldwide scientific community. Data set descriptions from
such U.S. agencies as NASA, NOAA, USGS, DOE, and EPA, as well as from
universities and research centers such as NCAR, are included in the GCMD.

X Windows, alphanumeric (JAM), and World Wide Web interfaces, as well as
keyword and free text search capabilities are now available.
