Search for GCW datasets

The Global Cryosphere Watch catalogue is yet not considered an operational service. It is populated with metadata harvested from a number of contributing data centres, but data remains in the original location and are served through the interfaces supported by the originating data centre. The process of harvesting, filtering and translating metadata is still under development and will be modified through dialogue with contributing data centres and WMO activities organised through WIS and WIGOS.

Search the Global Cryosphere Watch catalogue. Use the lower left hand side menu to specify search criteria and use the tab menu below to alter how results are presented. Remember that the search criteria specified in the menu are additive (in the sense that e.g. both time and geographical position may be used to filter information).

Initially, only directory level datasets are shown. For each directory level dataset containing files on a second level, there is a small [+] button that provides access to individual files belonging to a dataset.

Datacollection period

Enter the Datacollection period to search for by filling in the FROM and TO fields below.

In each field, use the date format "YYYY-MM-DD". Just "YYYY" or "YYYY-MM" will also be understood.

Only datasets having a Datacollection period overlapping the interval thus defined, will be selected.
