Apart from validating the top-down Architecture for climate monitoring from space with a bottom-up approach ensuring traceability from usage to space-based observing system, other major objectives of this initiative are to demonstrate the value of Climate Data Records (CDRs) for decision/policy making and to optimise its usage in applications relevant for climate services and science. Support to capacity building can also be achieved by providing/receiving use cases for/from training activities, namely for developing countries. Additionally, a deeper understanding of the applications needs may lead to quality improvements for the ECV observation requirements defined by GCOS.
All use cases submitted with complete information will be reviewed and cases of high quality will be published here. Some selected use cases will also be considered for publication in a WMO special report to illustrate the importance of satellite observations for climate monitoring and climate service. Please consider submitting your use case using the template below.
Please see below the first set of submitted Use Cases that have already successfully completed the review process.
