The data are normally prepared on a VAX 4000 cluster and placed in an internal format (OCEANS) consisting of flat ASCII files headed by meta data structured as KEYWORD=VALUE. The VAX machines are networked with several UNIX machines of which a SUN Sparc-Center 2000, called Emerald, is primary. The data actually reside on a Mass Storage Management (MSM) disk which is resident on another UNIX machine (LaHave) and from which the data are available to the entire network. At present, anonymous outside access to this network is not permitted for security reasons, but that policy is presently under review.
