Need for new IPCC/Hydro1K data (and metadata) on EarthGrid
Currently, Hydro1K and IPCC datasets are stored on the SRB and referenced by EarthGrid EML metadata on KNB. There have been problems with maintaining the SRB EarthGrid servers for reliable data access. In addition, new IPCC and Hydro1K data is becoming available.
We thus need to get the latest version of IPCC and Hydro1K data into KNB (Metacat) repositories for reliable future access. (i.e. store both EML and the actual data into Metacat)
Although especially the Hydro1K data is large, storage on Metacat should probably not be a big issue (data is stored on the server file system)
