Climate Science Frontiers: Data Continuity, Measurement Consistency & Geospace Data Records

One of the biggest challenges for climate scientists is correlating multiple diverse data sets and identifying commonality across a wide range of climate variables to achieve highly accurate scientific results. To improve data results and simplify the data analysis and data product development process, the community is evaluating methods to maximize data quality and unify data standards.

Discussion topics will include how to:

  • Correlate data sets from disparate sensors efficiently
  • Determine the level of calibrated data required to meet mission needs
  • Identify mission risks, such as gaps in data sets, etc.
  • Plan for high-accuracy data results that can be reused for future missions
  • Determine the economic impact related to payload cleanliness requirements
