Meeting of the CryoNet and Portal Teams

11-13 June 2014, Davos, Switzerland

GCW held a meeting of its CryoNet and Portal Teams in Davos, Switzerland, 11-13 June 2014. The meeting was hosted by the Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research. The CryoNet Team and the Portal Team worked on issues of satellite product intercomparisons and inventories, product metadata, portal interoperability with various data centers and information systems, and a CryoNet site application. CryoNet is GCW’s network of surface observing sites. It is responsible for specifying site requirements, including “integrated” sites aimed at satellite cal/val and process studies. The Portal Team is responsible for the GCW data portal (gcw.met.no) and its separate information website (this site).
