I took a look at the site containing the data.  In order to get it into 
EcoGrid reasonably, we really should develop some EML metadata 
descriptions of the products you are interested in from that site.  I'm 
not sure how much work that would be -- depends on how complex and 
variable the different data sources are.  Once we have an EML 
description of each source, we can add them to the EcoGrid (currently 
that means manually adding the EML and the data to one of the EcoGrid 
systems).  My guess is that Metacat and SRB could be used for this one, 
but DiGIR is probably not appropriate for this data type.  Jing is 
working on putting EcoGrid access capabilities into Kepler, so once the 
data sets are accessible in EcoGrid you should be able to use them in 
Kepler in the workflow Chad is developing.
