GHRSST Data Assembly and Systems Technical Advisory Group (DAS-TAG)

post GHRSST-12 metadata review

The exhaustive review and update of all 59 GHRSST data sets in the new PO.DAAC data management system is now complete and ready for inspection and critique by data providers and science team members.

The review focused on improving and streamlining dataset descriptions, completing missing metadata attributes, improving references and defining consistent longnames for each datasets. Eventually these metadata records will be migrated to the NASA Global Change Master Directory as well as other metadata repositories. Their current exposure on web sites means that search engines like Google are indexing and further exposing them.

The best place to start for your "particular dataset" or your "favorite dataset" is here:

http://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/datasetlist? ... oup+for+...

This represents the collection of all 59 GHRSST datasets. You can use facets (on the left hand side) such as "Processing Level", "Spatial Resolution", "Sensor" etc. to further "drill" and refine your search to the dataset of interest. If you can't find it, we aren't doing our job right !

We are looking for feedback on description completeness, correct provider attribution, and journal references for GHRSST data sets. But other comments are welcome. We are not exposing all GHRSST metadata captured (from DSD and FR metadata) so if there is something missing you feel is important please state that and it will be taken under consideration.

Please use this forum topic to address all metadata comments. Be specific on edits or language changes you request ! If no comments are given on a particular dataset it will be assumed the provider is happy with the metadata as is.

Also please list the link to the GHRSST data set you are providing comment on. For example here is the one for NCDC Level 4 AVHRR_OI:

Thanks

link to NCDC website does not work

http://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/NCDC ... B-AVHRR_OI
http://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/NCDC ... RR_AMSR_OI

For both these websites, there is a link to the NCDC page. It does not work because the period at the end of the sentence is part of the link. If it is removed, then it works.
