This wiki website is devoted to the preparation for a proposal 'Air Quality Observatory (AQO) Prototype', NSF solicitation: Cyberinfrastructure for Environmental Observatories. This experiment in open collaborative proposal writing is facilitated by the ESIP wiki; their support is appreciated. To participate, click on "create account or log in" in the upper right corner and you can begin to create or edit pages and discuss items by clicking the edit tab. To practice editing, take a few minutes playing in the Sandbox. A good way to start is by scanning and possibly contributing to the Discussion on the 12 NSF Requirements stated in the solicitation. For questions or problems, please contact the moderator.
