Data Catalog

The Science On a Sphere® Data Catalog is comprised of more than 500 datasets from NOAA, NASA, universities, science centers and other organizations; 40 are real-time datasets offered by NOAA. Each month 21 terabytes of data are downloaded from the catalog. The datasets are divided into the categories of Atmosphere, Ocean, Land, Astronomy, Models and Simulations, and Extras. The catalog is continually growing, so be sure to check back often. Each dataset entry includes a description of the dataset, a picture, a video, notable features, relevant links, and source information.
