This report summarizes the availability of the Magellan data sets archived by the Planetary Data System Geosciences Node and outlines the charter and duties of the Node. Additional notes will be published in Eos as data sets of wide interest are made available to the community through the Geosciences Node.

NASA's Planetary Data System (PDS) is a distributed archive and distribution system in which planetary data and documentation are maintained in direct association with the science community [Lee, 1991]. PDS is managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The PDS Geosciences Node serves the needs of investigators in the planetary geology and geophysics and extraterrestrial materials communities.
