Pilot: Cold Regions 

GEO Cold Regions coordinates global efforts to provide Earth Observation (EO) products and services to science, decision- and policy-makers with a vested interest in the cryosphere (in particular) and the environment (in general) of polar regions and mountain areas around the world. The NextGEOSS Cold Regions Pilot will focus on three areas: (1) the Arctic/Svalbard region, (2) Antarctica, and (3) the Himalayan glaciers, and will address the existing shortage in accessing in situ data in GEOSS. We will liaise with ongoing initiatives such as SIOS, GEO-CRI, WMO GCW, as well as national programs in Antarctica .

Next GEOSS aims: The focus of the pilot will be on linking together data available in near-real-time (NRT, with up to 1 day delay from measurement, and a target of 1 hour delay) from the targeted regions, including the atmospheric, marine, and terrestrial domains, and make them available in the NextGEOSS Data Hub and the Global Cold Regions Community Portal.
