Abstract: The Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) holds various databases collectively representing a valuable environmental research resource. However, their use inside and outside CEH is constrained by lack of data accessibility and interoperability. This project has focused on three test-bed datasets held at the Lancaster Environment Centre which form a good example of the diversity of CEH terrestrial and freshwater data. Metadata systems and access tools have been constructed in collaboration with the NERC Data Grid (NDG) to provide users with Grid services linking data discovery to dataset delivery. A data dictionary is also being developed to describe environmental data as this will enable ontological interoperability.
