Prototype for the databank publicly available
A very initial version of the envisaged global surface databank is available from http://www.gosic.org/GLOBAL_SURFACE_DATABANK/GBD.html. It should be stressed that this is in the very early stages of development. A full version release is not expected until early to mid 2012. This allows time to harvest additional data sources, reprocess, merge, and add provenance information so that it represents a significant delta from what has gone before in terms of both completeness and fundamental scientific value. Comments are welcome here but would be more appropriate at the new databank blog.
