APPENDIX D

New 1998 Global Change Related Data Products

This appendix includes a representative listing of global change related research data products made available for the first time in 1998 by USGCRP agencies. In February 1999 a fuller listing of the agencies’ data sets with authors, sources, and Web links for each will be on the Global Change Data and Information System Web page (http:// www.gcdis.usgcrp.gov).
