Title Application of the NERC DataGrid Metadata and Data Models in the NERC Ecological Data Grid
Abstract The Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) holds various databases collectively representing a valuable environmental research resource. However, their use inside and outside CEH is constrained by lack od data accessibility and interoperability. This project has focused on three test-bed datasets held at the Lancaster Environment Centre which form a good example of the diversity of CEH terrestrial and freshwater data. Metadata Systems and access tools have been constructed in collaboration with the NERC Data Grid (NDG) to provide users with Grid services linking data discovery to dataset delivery. This paper focusses on the modelling of CEH's data and metadata using the NDG models.
