Posted by Tyler Stevens, Last modified by Tyler Stevens on 24 October 2013 12:00 PM

The GCMD contains descriptions of data sets covering all disciplines that produce and use data to help us understand our changing planet. The GCMD includes metadata from disciplines including atmospheric science, biology, oceanography, ecology, geology, hydrology, and human dimensions of climate change. This interdisciplinary focus is aimed at researchers exploring the interconnections and interrelations of mulitdisciplinary variables on global changes (e.g., How global warming may impact human health).

The full list of science disciplines is as follows:

  • Agriculture
  • Atmosphere
  • Biological Classifications
  • Biosphere
  • Climate Indicators
  • Cryosphere
  • Human Dimensions
  • Land Surface
  • Oceans
  • Paleoclimate
  • Solid Earth
  • Spectral/Engineering
  • Sun-Earth Interactions
  • Terrestrial Hydrosphere
