GSFC Earth Sciences (GES) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC), 
located at the GES Data and Information Services Center  (DISC) is 
moving away from data distribution by media

November 1, 2005 marks the beginning of the electronic (only) era for 
data distribution. Full distribution support services will continue.

Due to the need to contain costs, the GES DISC will be eliminating 
operational media distribution of all its data holdings on October 
31, 2005. This decision, not only provides great cost savings by 
doing away with a redundant, less efficient distribution method, but 
it also allows NASA to re-focus funds into refreshing current system 
implementations to be more user efficient and responsive, and into 
areas that will provide more advanced user-driven, 
discipline-specific services. Over the next several months we would 
be interested in knowing technical issues that you may have as a 
result of this decision. Feel free to contact our user services with 
your comments: help at daac.gsfc.nasa.gov
