EE Related Datasets
The EE Rule makes use of the "Weight of Evidence" approach where most weight in the submitted evidence is given to observations or qualified models. In the past States had to go through the tedious and costly process to find, access and understand these resources. Through the federated data system, DataFed, the States and the EPA Regions can access EE-relevant data from satellites, models and other sources through a single interface.
