8th G-VAP Workshop

Jun 13 - 14, 2019 | Madrid, Spain

8th G-VAP workshop is hosted by AEMET.

The need for quality assessments of Essential Climate Variables (ECVs) Climate Data Records (CDRs) is part of the GCOS guidelines for the generation of data products. The assessement process gives an overview of available data records and enables users to judge the quality and fitness for purpose of CDRs by informing them about the strengths and weaknesses of existing and readily available information. This is achieved by inter-comparison and evaluation, and, if possible, also providing the reasons behind differences and limitations. Assessments of data records related to the global energy and water cycles became an integral part of GEWEX activities over the last decades.

The overall objective of 5th G-VAP workshop will be to discuss results from the various G-VAP science activities, to discuss results achieved within the wider community, including latest retrieval developments, to foster cooperation and exchange and to discuss the next steps of G-VAP, in particular potential new activities.
