Supplementary Report on the Regional Requirements for Satellite Data in RA III/IV

This report quotes findings from the 2011 Miami progress meeting and provides a status update.

In a next step, WMO will send a letter to all its Members in RA III and IV and to NOAA/NESDIS, INPE, EUMETSAT, informing them on the results of the Task Team and inviting nominations to a standing regional group which is expected to continue (and expand) the work of the Task Team on a long-term basis. WMO also encourages the satellite providers covering the area to continue working with regional Members on meeting their requirements for satellite data, including that satellite data dissemination mechanisms in response to regional requirements be established on a long-term, timely and affordable footing.

1. Hemos hecho unos pocos cambios con respecto a la versi�n anterior Rev-3D.


2. Se le not�, como se mencion� en la versi�n anterior, que han mantenido algunos duplicidad formato (GEOTIFF / HDF) en un muy pocos productos, coloc�ndolos en l�neas separadas de la tabla (por ejemplo: productos de 29 y 29 bis, 33 y 33 bis, 42 y 42 bis, 51 y 51 bis). Lo hicimos despu�s de darse cuenta de que pod�a mantener ambos formatos de transmisi�n previstas en el tipo de datos.

 

3. Tambi�n utilizamos el "TAMA�O FINAL" (comprimido) de columna para estimar las tasas de datos, suponiendo una tasa de compresi�n de 50%, para la mayor�a de los archivos compresible.



1. We have made just a few changes with respect to the former version Rev-3d.


2. You will noticed , as mentioned for the former version, that we have kept some format duplicity (GEOTIFF /HDF) on a very few products , placing them on separate lines of the table (ex: products 29 and 29a; 33 and 33a; 42 and 42a; 51 and 51a). We did so after realizing that we could keep both formats within the planned transmission data rate.

 

3. We also used the "FINAL SIZE" (compressed) column to estimate the data rates, assuming a compression rate of 50%, for most of the compressible files.

SATELLITE DATA REQUIREMENTS WORKSHOP FOR RA III and RA IV

The Satellite Data Requirements Workshop for RA III and RA IV, convened by WMO, was hosted by the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espacias (INPE) with support of NOAA. The purpose of the workshop was to review the requirements for satellite products that had been identified by the Task Team on Satellite Data Requirements established in June 2009 by the Secretary General of WMO, and to identify a way forward to provide a practical and efficient response to these requirements.

Estimado Equipo de Trabajo del "SATELLITE DATA REQUIREMENTS WORKSHOP FOR RA III and RA IV"

1. Con respecto a las versiones anteriores, en �sta hemos agrupado los productos similares para hacer m�s eficiente la intercomparaci�n de los mismos y sus pr�ximas revisiones


2. Para mejorar la claridad hemos elegido columnas independientes para �Nombre del Producto�, �Informaci�n Caracter�stica� y �Cobertura�.

 

3. Donde aparec�a m�s evidente hemos filtrado la duplicidad de los formatos, presente en antiguas versiones.

 

4. El formato GEOTIFF ha sido asignado a productos orientados a la generaci�n de im�genes y el an�lisis sin�ptico.


5. El formato BUFR ha sido asignado a productos para asimilaci�n.

 

6. Esta revisi�n refleja tambi�n una importante sugerencia : todos los productos que consisten en la informaci�n de la imagen (�tems: 1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 7; 19) y que se exhib�an en doble formato (GEOTIFF y HDF) en las anteriores versiones de la Tabla, ahora est�n siendo asignadas solamente en el formato GEOTIFF, adecuado para la "product and image generation" , aplicaci�n b�sica.


7. Nosotros estamos considerando que los usuarios interesados en esta informaci�n , con la intenci�n de asimilaci�n, puedan obtenerla a trav�s de medios alternativos de comunicaci�n, tales como ftp-Internet. Por favor, si�ntase con la libertad de acercarnos sus comentarios sobre esta cuesti�n.

 

8. Alguna duplicidad GEOTIFF y/o HDF todav�a contin�a para algunos pocos productos. En estos casos ser�n necesarias mayores discusiones para alcanzar una soluci�n definitiva.

 

9. Hay tambi�n una columna adicional para el �TAMA�O FINAL� (comprimida). Usaremos esa columna, en la revisi�n final, para estimar las tasas de informaci�n.


10. 10. Actualmente, estamos asumiendo una tasa de compresi�n del 50%, para la mayor�a de los archivos compresibles. Muy probablemente , hacia el final de las revisiones, conseguiremos un sustancial decrecimiento en las tasas de informaci�n usando esa columna.


11. Como usted observar�, algunos acr�nimos fueron elegidos para el ��rea de Cobertura�. M�s negociaciones sobre el tema tendr�n lugar para alcanzar un acuerdo final sobre la m�s deseada (o adecuada) �rea de cobertura para cada producto.

 

12. Le pedimos que descargue la �ltima versi�n de la tabla "RA-III-IV-Requirements-v20100630 (rev3d).xls" .


13. Una vez revisada, si deseara hacer alg�n comentario, por favor, env�e la tabla revisada y/o sus comentarios a Diego Souza - (email: diego.souza@cptec.inpe.br).

 

14. Nosotros organizaremos y compilaremos todos los comentarios y sugerencias en una versi�n final que ser� enviada a todos los interesados.

 

15. Gracias por su gentil cooperaci�n en este trabajo.



Dear Task Team of the SATELLITE DATA REQUIREMENTS WORKSHOP FOR RA III and RA IV

1. With respect to the former versions we have grouped together the similar products in order to make more efficient the inter-comparisons and the next run of revisions!


2. To improve clarity we elected independent columns for Product Name, Data Characteristics and Coverage.

 

3. Where would appear more evident we already filtered the duplicity of formats, present in former versions.

 

4. GEOTIFF format has been assigned to products oriented to image generation and synoptic analysis.


5. BUFR format assigned to products for assimilation.

 

6. This revision is also reflecting one important suggestion : all the products that consist of image data (Items: 1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 7; 19) and were exhibiting dual formats (GEOTIFF and HDF) in the former versions of the Table, are now being assigned only to the GEOTIFF format, proper for the "product and image generation" basic application.


7. We are considering that the users interested in this data, for assimilation purposes, should get them through alternative communications means, like ftp-Internet. Please fell free to place your comments about this issue.

 

8. Some duplicity GEOTIFF and/or HDF still remains for some few products. Further discussions will be necessary to reach a final solution in these cases.

 

9. There is also an additional column for the FINAL SIZE (compressed) . We shall use this column, in the final revision, to estimate the data rates.


10. Presently we are assuming the compression rate of 50%, for most of the compressible files. Very likely we shall get, in the end, a substantial decrease on the data rates by using this column.


11. As you will find, some acronyms were elected for the "Coverage Area". Further negotiations shall take place in order to reach a final agreement on the most desirable or adequate coverage areas for each product.

 

12. We kindly ask you to download this last version of the table "RA-III-IV-Requirements-v20100630 (rev3d).xls" .


13. After revising it or should you wish to make any comment, please send the revised table and/or your comments to Diego Souza - (email: diego.souza@cptec.inpe.br).

 

14. We then intend to organize and compile your different feedbacks onto a final version that shall be submitted to everybody.

 

15. Thank you for your kind cooperation to this work.
