Establish a practical minimum core set of descriptors for the AQ community, to be used in our various resource catalogs.

Discussion: Development and experimentation with resource registries continue. A key missing component of this infrastructure however is a practical common set of descriptor for this communities key resources (e.g. ground based observations, satellite data, model data, and the related intermediate products and services). While there are likely to be ongoing debates and developments about the preferred super-set of such descriptors, this area focuses on establishing a core minimum which would be used to demonstrate/evaluate utility of such registries beyond the individual Agency registrations and/or the limited cross-Agency pilots conducted to date.

Candidate Product: Documentation and demonstrations of a core descriptor set.

Near-Term Action/Product:
