The NASA Earth Sciences Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project has directed each Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) to establish and sponsor a User Working Group (UWG).
The Land Processes DAAC UWG is responsible for providing consultation and recommendations covering a broad range of topics related to the LP DAAC systems, services, and capabilities. The Group is responsible for representing the interests of the land remote sensing community in this process. The LP DAAC UWG will not be responsible for making decisions or implementing recommendations. Topics for consideration by the UWG include, but are not limited to the following:
In consideration of the mission, objectives, and responsibilities of the LP DAAC, the UWG will be comprised of no more than 18 members. Group membership will be recommended by the LP DAAC and existing Group, with final appointment authority resting with the ESDIS Project and NASA Headquarters. Additional members may be recommended and invited as need may arise for additional specific expertise, and the mix of initial representation may be varied as necessary and appropriate. These members include four ex officio members, one member from each of the relevant Science Teams (e.g., ASTER and MODIS Land), and up to 12 members from the land remote sensing community at large. The four ex officio members are: The LP DAAC Manager, the LP DAAC Project Scientist, the LP DAAC Program Scientist at NASA Headquarters, and the ESDIS Project Representative. Members from the land remote sensing community will be selected from among, but not limited to, the following groups: research and academia, federal agencies, private sector, and NGOs.
Meeting artifacts are available to LP DAAC UWG members via login.
