It contains an enormous amount of information relevant to global geoscience issues in interactive map form. Over 100 different datasets are available on a wide range of topics related to the Earth system. Datasets include:

Users can view these data on a wide variety of scales, and click on areas of interest for more detailed information, much of which is available for download and reuse.

Other layers include ocean-dissolved nutrient concentrations; sea surface height; satellite imagery; detailed bathymetry; cloud cover; soil moisture; and global climate predictions.
