The NERC Data Discovery Service allows you to find data resources held within the NERC DataGrid (NDG) catalogue. The catalogue makes data discovery easier as it connects data held in managed archives and other initiatives.

It is populated with 'discovery' metadata (information about data sets) harvested on a regular basis from the NERC Data Centres and other providers in the UK and worldwide.

Choose one or more search categories to query the catalogue and return data sets of interest. Links to further information and/or data access are provided in the responses.
