Abstract : The Master Environmental Library (MEL) is a World Wide Web (WWW) based data discovery and retrieval system providing access via a consistent single interface to oceanographic, terrain, atmospheric, and near space data bases and related tools residing in geographically distributed resource sites with arbitrary data base configurations and data formats. The key features of MEL are a consistent standard for metadata contents, a common user-friendly interface, a generic order/delivery system under resource site control, and use of standard transfer formats. In the Modeling and Simulation Resource Repository (MSRR), MEL provides access to the environmental domain.
