This guideline is intended to help all producers of climate-relevant datasets (e.g., meteorological services, research institutions, oceanographic centres, environmental agencies, space agencies, universities) in the way they document, assess the quality of, and publicize their work related to the generation, processing and analysis of climate datasets and derived products (i.e. Fundamental Climate Data Records (FCDRs)2 and Essential Climate Variable products (ECV, cf. Annex I)), based on observations from surface-based, airborne and satellite-based instruments.
Notes: *An update of the “Guideline for the Generation of Satellite-based Datasets and Products meeting GCOS Requirements” (GCOS-128, WMO/TD-No. 1488), including in situ datasets and amendments
