FIDUCEO brings insights from metrology (measurement science) to the observation of Earth’s climate from space. New versions of four key Fundamental Climate Data Records (FCDRs) will be created that include state-of-the-art information about observational uncertainty. We will demonstrate how to propagate that information to derived geophysical datasets — i.e., five important climate data records (CDRs) will be developed with traceable uncertainty and stability estimates.
Assimila’s role in the FIDUCEO project is to design, build, manage and monitor the project website. This website is the source of project dissemination; delivering tutorials, datasets, documents, news and other resources to the broader community.
