    Ben Goossen is a scholar of global history. His interests include the environment, transnationalism, religion, science, and life in the Anthropocene. Goossen's current project, "The Year of the Earth (): Cold War Science and the Making of Planetary Consciousness," is an interpretive history of the International Geophysical Year. The World Data Centers (WDC's) came into existence during the International Geophysical Year. The primary purpose of the guide is to describe the responsibility of national committees, institutions, and scientists in forwarding data and information to the WDC's, and to describe the data which will be received at WDC's and the responsibilities of WDC's in their handling of data.
