Abstract
A major concern of environmental scientists, and others with long term data requirements, has been the establishment of metadata standards so that data recorded today will be accessible 50 to 100 years hence. We contend that more important than the standards themselves will be the context in which they can be represented and can evolve as new requirements and technologies emerge. In this paper, we discuss an object oriented language which facilitates both the representation of metadata as well as its graceful evolution.
