Quality Assurance for Essential Climate Variables (QA4ECV)

Start date: Sep 27, 2013, End date: Jan 1, 2018,

Policy makers are increasingly relying on Earth Observation (EO) data to make decisions on mitigating and adapting to climate change. These decisions need to be 'evidence-based' and this requires complete confidence in EO-derived products. Although EO data is plentiful, it is rare to have reliable, traceable and understandable quality information. The situation is often further confused because va ...
