QUALITY CONTROL PROCEDURES: 1. The CAMP Quality Control Web Interface For all parameters, the data has been visually checked, looking for extremely and unusual low/high values and/or periods with constant values thorough the CAMP Quality Control Web Interface. The quality control flags follow the CEOP data flag definition document. 2. UCAR/JOSS Quality Control Procedures UCAR/JOSS conducted two primary quality assurance/control procedures on the reference site data. First the data has been evaluated by a detailed QA algorithm that Verifies the format is correct, examines any QC flags, and conducts basic checks on data values. Second, JOSS conducts a manual inspection of time series plots of each parameter.

Access_Instructions:
The Coordinated Enhanced ObservingPeriod (CEOP) seeks to establish an integrated global observing system for the water cycle which responds to both scientific and social needs. It is built as the foundation of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) in cooperation with the World Meteorological Organization(WMO) and Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) under the framework of the Integrated Global Observing Strategy partnership (IGOS-P). CEOP is an effort to address some of the critical aspects of the climate system involving land areas in particular over a 2 year period beginning in mid-2001. It will focus on two overall issues: 1) water and energy fluxes and reservoirs over land areas, and 2) monsoonal circulations. CEOP will involve the simultaneous or near-simultaneous collection of observations from several regions around the world. In particular, it will include: 1) several reference sites in the continental-scale experimental regions of GEWEX as well as other regions, 2) extensive field measurements for addressing monsoonal systems, and 3) validation studies for new satellite systems CEOP will lead to: 1) better understanding of water and energy fluxes and reservoirs over specific land areas, 2) progress at better appreciating the role of land areas in the whole climate system, 3) a testing of our capabilities to transfer techniques and models between different GEWEX continental-scale experimental (and other) regions and to predict water-related parameters and, 4) enhanced understanding of the land-atmosphere-ocean interactions. CEOP Enhanced Observing Period 3 (EOP-3) covers the time period from 1 October 2002 through 30 September 2003. Temporal Coverage Begin Date: 20021001, End Date: 20030930 Spatial Coverage Minimum Latitude: -90.000000, Minimum Longitude: -180.000000 Maximum Latitude: 90.000000, Maximum Longitude: 180.000000 The Committee on Earth Observation Satellite (CEOS) agencies use their best efforts to contribute to CEOP and in particular, to cooperate the CEOP satellite data integration and the field campaigns at reference sites. Some of the ultimate goals of these groups are related to more accurate determination of the water cycle in association with climate variability and change as well as baseline data on the impacts of this variability on water resources. CEOP will enable us to address such crucial issues through a 'hands-on', focused examination of the water cycle over a particular time period.
