- Data to be added in FY2011:
- 1. Add more CMAQ data (2001-2006+, OAQPS, CDC, AQMEII, etc.)
- 2. Add all MOZAIC data.
- 3. CALIPSO L2 (layer product).

- 7. LARCTM (US backtrajectory) NASA Langley.
- 8. AURA-OMI/SCIAMACHY (global satellite).
- 9. MOPITT CO (global satellite).
- 10. Use a suitable Sonoma Tech webserver for GMT-hourly Airnow ozone, PM25 data.
- 11. Add other requested data, e.g., from Datafed.net.
- Status and Plans for RSIG Data Connections
- AQCSV data format documentation
- [www.airnowgateway.org AIRNow Gateway]
- HTAP Network
GEO-ESIP Community Activities (5 min each)
GEO AQ Community of Practice
- GEO AQ CoP Collaborative Website
- GEO AQ CoP at HTAP, 2010-06-15, Brussels
- GEO AQ CoP at UIC Mtg, 2010-02-15, London
AQ GEOSS Community Infrastructure
- ISO metadata for finding data
- GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot AIP-3
- what is the state of the network connection Connectivity Matrix (maybe this should be renamed to the AQ Network Matrix?)
- Highlight nodes that are red that are high priority and aren't connected (outcome - critical systems need to be networked)
(scheduled break from 2:45-3:15 Eastern)
Discussion Focus Areas (20min each)
- Institutional and human factors challenges and opportunities in interoperability
- Interoperability successes among projects and use/planned use of GEOSS AQ Community Infrastructure
- Lessons learned and guidance that can be formulated for others to use in their implementations
- Challenges and new approaches to implementing interoperability
- Define next steps for interoperability testing among projects
- update interoperability matrix
- Virtual AQ Interoperability Standards Implementation Workshops: making them work for you
- CyAir Reflections: Given discussion above: What does this mean for CyAir?
July 22, Thursday
- Outline next Interoperability Standards Implementation 'Virtual Workshops'
- Define goals, scope and logistics for face-to-face/virtual AQ Interoperability Standards Implementation Workshop
- Listing of current connected datasets (with monitoring of service performance)
- Example of health performance on AQ uFIND - shows status of server (how many layers returned) and status of indiv. layer
- Plans for GEO-VI Plenary Air Quality 'Showcase'
Ideas and Suggestions for Summer Meeting
- Entire should be virtual - expect that more than half of participants might be remote.
- Potential collaboration with the Tech workshops from Tuesday
- Describe HTAP Network, ACP, other AQ projects by the way that they leverage AQ Community Infrastructure
- identifying and begin registering the emerging air quality data-as-services from the various projects e.g. (HTAP network; Atmp Comp Network, CyAir)
- using the ISO metadata for cataloging, discovery and finding the shared data resources
- agree on a few practical use cases for demonstrating interoperability and networking
We could also begin work on the
- convention for metadata for understanding the observations (surface, satellite, model, emission...)
- distributing the shared tools and methods (server, client, registration...)
A particular topic that would help GEOSS is a participatory discussion/feedback on the User Requirements Registry for air quality. A possible way to approach this is to ask the project representatives to identify their respective user requirements. I can provide more later..
