NASA's Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) is located within NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. It provides access to a wide range of global climate data, concentrated primarily in the areas of atmospheric composition, atmospheric dynamics, global precipitation, and solar irradiance. GES DISC supports data from many heritage and EOS missions including AquaAura, Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE), Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM), Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS), and Earth Probe/Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometers (TOMS). GES DISC also provides data subsetting, exploration, visualization, and access services.

Global Climate Data

GES DISC data sets can be accessed through the online Data Holdings page which provides several search and order methods, including the keyword-based Mirador and Open-source Project for a Network Data Access Protocol (OPeNDAP), as well as Earthdata Search.
