 APPENDIX B 1:30 Breakouts (focus on ECVs) Charge to the day 1 breakout groups: Each of the afternoon working groups will provide a short report that will be presented the following day in plenary session. 1. What are the priority space-based ECVs/climate data records under consideration by this breakout? 2. What subset of the above will be accommodated by the coordinated NASA-NOAA strategy as presented in the phase II NASA-NOAA remanifest study? 3. Are there alternative approaches that are not explored in the NASA-NOAA study (e.g., free flyers, alternative platforms, leveraging international partners)? 4. Assess the risks and benefits of these various options. 5. Document your results in the template that will be distributed at the meeting. Some of the issues to be considered in the above: 1. History/limitations of extant database and measurement capabilities, including calibration limita - tions and needs 2. How well alternative, indirect measurements or models can compensate for the lack of direct observations 3. Issues for interpreting the climate record—simultaneity of observations in time and space of related geophysical variables; spatial, altitudinal, and temporal resolution for each of the sensors, e.g., free flyers 4. Long-term strategy for ensuring climate records and broader climate services vision—overlap, calibration, redundant measurements/validation, data processing/reprocessing, algorithm devel - opment/evolution, archiving, science teams, grants/funding programs to support science teams Breakout Session 1—Consideration of NPOESS and GOES-R Priority Measurements for ECVs/Climate Data Records Related to Observations of the Atmosphere Tom Vonder Haar, Colorado State University; John Bates, NCDC Rapporteur: Mark Schoeberl, GSFC Breakout Session 2—Consideration of NPOESS and GOES-R Priority Measurements for ECVs/Climate Data Records Related to Observations of the Oceans Bob Weller, invited; Jeff Privette, NCDC Rapporteur: Ralph Milliff, NWRA Breakout Session 3—Consideration of NPOESS and GOES-R Priority Measurements for ECVs/Climate Data Records Related to Observations of the Land Berrien Moore, University of New Hampshire; Marc Imhoff, GSFC Rapporteur: Compton Tucker, CCSP 4:30 Workshop Adjourns for Day
