Surface Observation Gridding System (SOGS)
Entry ID: NASA_ARC_SOGS

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Access to reliable weather data is a pre-requisite for ecosystem modeling. The availability of weather observations has been a key obstacle in the development of real-time EF systems. Historically, weather data was made available on tapes or CDs months after it was collected and corrected for errors. This time lag precluded real-time simulations, a precursor to developing forecasting capability. ... View entire text
