<p>Satellites and other Earth-observing systems produce huge amounts of data at ever-expanding rates. The EOS satellite Terra alone adds more than half a terabyte of data each day, and other Earth-observing platforms and computer weather and climate models produce even more. To use this data in their research effectively, scientists need distributed user-centric information systems with effective search, analysis, andordering capabilities.</p>
