The archival storage and use of meteorological data sets are discussed. Plans for handling a large data set should often include the creation of a small set that captures much of the information. Most data sets are small enough that they can be readily handled by using present technology, if the data are in machinable form and if appropriate methods are used to process the data. The system used for data storage and access should be made up of modular blocks that are simple to use, yet can cope with a full range of diversity. Several data sets of interest to ASTM are discussed.
