Sophisticated data-distribution schemes and recent developments in sensors and instruments that can monitor the lower kilometers of the atmosphere at high levels of resolution have rapidly expanded the quantity of information available to mesoscale meteorology. The myLEAD personalized information-management tool helps geoscience users make sense of this vastly expanded information space. MyLEAD extends the general globus metadata catalog service and leverages a well-known general and extensible schema. Its orientation makes it an active player in large-scale distributed computation environments characterized by interacting grid and Web services.
