Abstract : Datasets available for polar research on global change topics are summarized. Emphasis is given to data that define the large, including rawinsonde data, surface meteorological observations, cloud drift winds, atmospheric analyses, sea ice, planetary radiation, and ocean forcing. Plans are discussed for making improved atmospheric analyses, using existing data. The use of CD-ROMs and DAT technologies for data distribution is discussed and selected CD-ROMs are listed.
