All collections offered or maintained at EROS are reviewed through the EROS scientific records appraisal process in order to qualify for EROS Long-Term Archive (LTA) archival services. Data and information products must align with the EROS mission to best serve the land remote sensing research community. LP DAAC Data Scientists shepherd new products through the process by offering them to the EROS.
A WBS for the Long-Term Archive Phase that can serve as a guide for the DAAC Data Scientist to migrate data and information products from the LP DAAC to the Long-Term Archive is provided in table 7. An internal EROS administrative procedure (Faundeen, unpub. data, 2012) provides the process to obtain approval to migrate an Active Archive collection to the EROS LTA Project. The procedure also covers subject matter normally in Operations Agreements (OA) or Interface Control Documentation (ICD) that would be required between external agencies; in this case, the agreement is between several organizations internal to the USGS.
