Climate Data Records from Environmental Satellites:
Interim Report. Published by the National Academies in 2004. Summary of the full report: "The report outlines key elements to consider in designing a program to create climate-quality data from satellites. It examines historical attempts to create climate data records, provides advice on steps for generating, re-analyzing, and storing satellite climate data, and discusses the importance of partnering between agencies, academia, and industry. NOAA will use this report--the first in a two-part study--to draft an implementation plan for climate data records." This report brief(like
