Award Description: The National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) has responsibility under the Climate Observations and Modeling (COM) program for a recent initiative called the Climate Data Record (CDR) Project. This project seeks to develop and sustain as complete and consistent a climate record as possible from remotely sensed and in situ measurements in order to provide users with climate quality data and information products. Climate Data Records (CDRs) and Climate Information Records (CIRs) will be produced on an operational basis following a phased, spiral development process that evolves candidate algorithms through multiple maturing levels; includes rapid technology insertion, robust test and evaluation, and total life-cycle systems management; and, relies on climate community participation throughout its execution.
Project Description: The CDR Project Management Office (PMO) is responsible for executing the CDR Project and for ensuring that the Project?s baseline requirements are met, the necessary capabilities to produce operationally useful CDRs and CIRs are delivered, and those capabilities are sustained over their life-cycle. To carry out its mission, the CDR Project Office requires support and deliverables in six basic areas: 1) Algorithm Development and Processing, 2) Calibration, Validation and Characterization of Data, 3) Science and Climate Information Records, 4) Long Term Stewardship, 5) Applications for Mitigation and Adaptation, and 6) Project Management and Planning Support. These areas are hereafter referred to as Work Breakdown Structures (WBS).
Jobs Summary: 1) Algorithm Development and Processing 2) Calibration, Validation and Characterization of Data 3) Science and Climate Information Records 4) Long Term Stewardship 5) Applications for Mitigation and Adaptation 6) Project Management and Planning Support (Total jobs reported: 28)
