    140141== Metadata Harvesting of ESGF Datasets of a search ==
    141 The metadata harvesting will allow after completed, download the datasets from multiple data nodes, and will allow exploring climate datasets without having to download the dataset itself . So we can know its nature in detail before selecting them to download or we can know the services offered from ESGF to access and/or explore the dataset. Some of these services can be explored from ToolsUI NetCDF Java as will be explained after.

     219Metalink is an extensible metadata file format that describes one or more computer files available for download. It specifies files appropriate for the user's language and operating system; facilitates file verification and recovery from data corruption; and lists alternate download sources (mirror URIs).
