The Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) at Goddard Space Flight Center
gives away data for studying and learning about atmospheric dynamics, the
upper atmosphere, and Earth's vegetation. You can use these data to study
* greenhouse global warming
* deforestation and desertification and their role in
* ozone depletion
* El Nino effect on weather and climate
* impact of volcano eruptions on ozone concentration
* the role of ocean in global climate
and more. All Goddard DAAC products are FREE and available ON LINE.

[ ] The GEDEX CD-ROM Set
The Greenhouse Effect Detection Experiment (GEDEX) data
collection contains over 60 data sets with parameters relevant
to greenhouse gas effect research (surface and upper air
temperature, solar irradiances, radiation budget, clouds, and
greenhouse gases). Many data sets are available for a 10 year
period spanning the 1980s. Depending on the data set, coverage
is global, regional, or local.
[ ] ISLSCP CD-ROM Set
The International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project
Initiative I - Global Data Sets for Land-Atmosphere Models,
data collection contains vegetation and biophysics, hydrology,
near surface meteorology, radiation, soils, snow, and ice
parameters. Monthly, monthly-6 hourly, and some 6-hourly data
are available globally for 1987 through 1988 on a common
[ ] TOMS CD-ROM Set
The Nimbus-7 Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) Level 3
data contain global, daily, total-ozone values at 1.25-degree
spatial resolution. Data are divided into gridded values,
global images, overpass, and SBUV solar flux ozone data from
November 1978 to April 1992 on three CDs.
[ ] PAL CD-ROM Set
The Pathfinder Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR)
Land (PAL) Level 3 data, contains 1986, subsetted, 8 km
resolution, global 10-day composites. Data include Normalized
Difference Vegetation Index, Channel-1 and -2 reflectances, and
Channel-4 and -5 brightness temperatures.
