1 Sustained Coordinated Processing of Environmental Satellite Data for Climate Monitoring Sustained Co-ordinated Processing Of Environmental Satellite Data For Climate Monitoring (SCOPE-CM) Overview and Next Steps John Bates, Chair SCOPE-CM Executive Panel

2 WMO’s SCOPE-CM initiative: goals and structure Aim: to address the requirements of GCOS in a cost-effective, coordinated manner, capitalising upon the existing expertise and infrastructures. Objective: continuous and sustained provision of high-quality Essential Climate Variables satellite products (Climate Data Records) on a global scale Structure: The SCOPE-CM Network will be: » Based on activities of existing initiatives (GOS, GCOS and GSICS) » Build upon existing operational infrastructures » Serve users and other organisations (e.g. WMO Regional Climate Centres RCC, National Weather Services)

8 GEWEX RADIATION PANEL WORKING GROUP ON DATA MANAGEMENT AND ANALYSIS Formed in 2004 by combining existing GRP Data Project Working Groups that date to 1980s Purpose: Coordinate next data product revision and re-processing to increase physical consistency and to produce joint data product Original Working Groups Differed in Nature –ISCCP: Data Processing Center Representatives –GPCP: Science Team & Data Processing Group –GACP & SRB: Data Processing Team –SeaFlux & LandFlux: Science Study Group Representative

9 GEWEX RADIATION PANEL WORKING GROUP ON DATA MANAGEMENT AND ANALYSIS Added Data Product Assessment WG Leaders for Precipitation, Radiation, Clouds (and Aerosols) Accumulated Functions –Monitor Data Exchanges and Resolve Problems –Radiance Calibration –Ancillary Data Acquisition & Evaluation –Review Scientific Developments for Retrieval Methods –Develop/Evaluate Analysis Methods & Revise Products –Assess Data Product Quality

10 Proposal to Transition Some GRP WGDM Functions to SCOPE-CM - Rationale SCOPE-CM is moving into Phase 2 – Ongoing pilot projects and new projects require sustained provision of data, calibration, and processing from operational environmental satellite SCOPE-CM is an appropriate mechanism for sustaining some important GRP WGDM functions Other GRP WGDM functions should remain within international research bodies and/or be part of shared responsibilities SCOPE Presentation Template - SCOPE CM 10

16 SCOPE-CM initial structure Current Members: Operational Agencies: NOAA, EUMETSAT, JMA, CMA (USGS) = operators of operational (meteorological) satellites Executive Panel as the only established formal structure so far. Pilot Projects: groups at different level of integration and nature of cooperation. Some pilot projects grouped by sensors, some by targeted ECV CDR

17 SCOPE-CM transition towards Phase 2: Questions and issues Increasing interest from other organisations: Universities, ESA, GEWEX,.... University groups to join SCOPE-CM? How? What are the conditions to become member? What shall be the difference between a SCOPE- CM activity and any other type of project? What shall be the difference and the relation to other initiatives, projects e.g. WMO GFCM, CEOS Climate Working Group, ESA CCI, GMES Climate,....

27 Questions to Consider for SCOPE-CM and GRP (a) continued involvement of the science community to diagnose new problems as they arise (b) periodic assessments and procedures to make sure the data are still relevant (c) periodic research announcement for more formal product improvement efforts (d) Tracking of progress in a quantifiable manner.
