Computational modeling systems (CMS) are designed to resolve many of the shortcomings associated with systems currently employed in providing support for a wide range of scientific modeling applications. We identify the requirements of a "reasonable" CMS and identify the requirements of Amazonia, a CMS intended to support modeling in large-scale earth science research. Amazonia has been implemented as an open and layered architecture. In this paper we discuss the design and implementation of the distributed access system, a key component of the Amazonia Kernel that supports the organization of and access to data and services in a distributed environment.
