    • RFP for AIP-4 CFP
    • IQ Cluster (ESIP) - need volunteer to present at ESIP Summer Meeting regarding two views:
      • First, what does the air quality community need for data quality (i.e., for many different applications, many things people do - monitoring, detecting, EPA legalistic things, etc)? Is it more important to get data measurement down to 5th digit, or more important to get data within 3 hours, most important coverage (space and time), more important to have consistency throughout data, or precise accuracy and measurement for particular date?
      • Second, there are different methodologies throughout the communities. For example, people working with ground-based measurement data - surface means different things throughout different communities. Need to hear about the knowledge that already exists in the AQ community.
