Initial Introductions - 20 minutes
Leader: Brad Lee
Rapporteur: Josh Lieberman
- Try to keep online, collaborative notes to document discussions
- Keep in mind to begin with understanding of present and potential users for scenarios in order to have a broad understanding of needed facilities and approach
- Working from engineering use cases will facilitate modeling of the resulting scenarios.
- How are capabilities registered (organization - component - service paradigm)?
- Recommendation to make components available at least through a Web Map Service
- Relation between AIP-3 pilot and other activities, e.g. Interoperability Experiments -> serendipity but no formal relationships
- Licensing - cascading licenses versus re-licensing with re-distribution.
- GCI is available now for registration / harvest / query and has much available content. Further contribution and refinement is expected. Emphasis on query through both portal user interfaces and CSW service interfaces.
- Decision support procedures do not have to be fully / automatically implemented. They can start as "recipes" in the Best Practice Wiki.
- Stefano Nativi - EuroGEOSS / Genesys FP-7 drought scenario and use cases. Several components and services. Also broker services utilizing vocabularies and ontologies for discovery (Cristiano Fugazza & Mattia Santoro). Relation to Stefan Niemeyer and European Drought Network.
- Steve Peedel - JRC / EuroGEOSS primarily working on biodiversity scenarios - tropical / subtropical zones, but looking at water monitoring and may be able to contribute same. Process role is also to advise on connecting thematic experts to GEOSS publication / sharing.
- Vojko Bratina EC / EuroGEOSS / EO2Heaven / FP-7 possible project connections, e.g. hypoxia in european waters.
- Liping Di - availability of agricultural datasets.
- Will Pozzi (presented by Brad Lee). Specific interest in soil moisture monitoring / prediction wrt agricultural issues. Initial focus on global scale.
- Kym Watson - EO2Heaven interest in water quality related to cholera scenario
- Veronica Guietti - ESA working with FAO on water quality monitoring of inland
and ocean waters for human and eco health, including aquaculture and
fisheries resources assesment. Also ocean and coastal water color / chlorophyll a.
Possible role for QA4EO as well in water quality / marine biodiversity.
Some of the related ESA projects are CoastColour, MARCOAST, EO Jelly, SeaGrass Monitoring e Ballast Water.
- Bradley Lee - CSIRO - South Esk flow forecast.
- François Marques - EO2Heavan.
There are two scenarios that will be considered - water quality and drought.
Suggestion that we should focus on a geographical region for each scenario. Suggestions so far:
water quality: Mozambique
A separate meeting will be held for each scenario. The leaders for each scenario are to schedule weekly(?) meetings as follows:
water quality: Veronica Guietti/François Marques to arrange a time convenient for Europe time as major contributors are based in Europe.
drought: Stefano Nativi/Liping Di/Will Pozzi to arrange a time convenient for US/Australian time as major contributors are based outside of Europe.
- Identify Users
- Assess transverse Use cases - speak to Larry McGovern
- Target of May for fleshed-out scenarios for drought and for water quality - describe workflows.
