Systematic Observation Requirements for Satellite-based Products for Climate Supplemental details to the satellite-based component of the Implementation Plan for the Global Observing System for Climate in Support of the UNFCCC
This document provides additional technical detail to the Actions and needs identified in the IP-10 related to satellite-based observations for climate for each of the ECVs listed in Table 1. In particular, it details the specific satellite data records that should be sustained in accordance with the GCMPs, as well as other important supplemental satellite observations that are needed on occasion or at regular intervals. Tables 2-4 provide an overview of the requirements for products and sustained satellite data records that are detailed in this document for the atmospheric, ocean and terrestrial domains, respectively.
