METAMOD 2.x is a portal solution providing Discovery, Access and Retrieve functionality for scientific datasets along with tools for metadata handling etc. It provides a way of searching datasets that are made available online using THREDDS Data Server offering HTTP and OpeNDAP access to NetCDF/CF formatted datasets.
