2015-2020 Goals:

  • Bring together people from various disciplines to assess aspects of quality of Earth science data
  • Establish and publish baseline of standards and best practices for data quality for adoption by inter-agency and international data providers
  • Build framework for consistent capture, harmonization, and presentation of data quality for the purposes of climate change studies, Earth science and applications
