Presents an HTTP-based client/server application prototype that facilitates Internet access to Earth science data. The client consists of a Java applet GUI that allows the user to select spatial/temporal subsets of indexed datasets. The client also includes a MATLAB interface that allows the incoming data to be loaded directly into a MATLAB session. The server provides directory, catalog and data access services and performs the subsetting operations prior to data transmission. An example is presented where data from multiple sources and in multiple formats are combined into a single MATLAB plot. The prototype addresses the lack of common data models in the Earth sciences. It also addresses the need for access to corroborating data by Earth Observation Satellite (EOS) instrument team members for calibration and validation
