An overview of the reasons why archiving environmental data properly is an important activity and the benefits to both data suppliers and end users. The talk will give examples from the work of the Centre for Environmental Data Archival at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory which runs both of NERC's British Atmospheric and Earth Observation Data Centres (BADC and NEODC) covering data delivery, archiving, discovery, visualisation and manipulation services at a facility responsible for over 1 Pb of important environmental data.
