    37 A search in ESGF returns the records that match the search constraints after querying to  an index node. The ESGF search service is always served by a index node and this node is able to do local and distributed searches. In this tool, the distributed capabilities of the ESGF are used so any selected index node will be used to query all nodes in the ESGF system.

    39 
    40 The search panel of ESGF climate data is in the "Search" sub-tab `(be patient, it takes a while for the panel to load)`. The search constraints are defined by parameter configuration in the panel or by introduction of a free-text search query. The result is the number of records finding in the federation that satisfy the constraints of search (in the bottom right area of the panel). A record is the physical replica of a climate dataset that is stored on a data node.

    45 [[Image(index_node_comboBox.png, align=left, margin=10)]] The searches are executed in a index node of the federation. Each node have different processing times for the response. For this reason, the user is allowed to select the index node where he/she prefers to send the search petition.[[BR]]

    49 [[Image(icono-warn.png, 5%, align=left, margin=10)]] A global search in ESGF must give the same result in all ESGF index nodes (according to ESGF wiki). However, for reasons external to this application and that are related with bugs in ESGF search service, sometimes they may give different results.
