Slide 1

WRCC – NPS Climate Inventory Project Kelly T. Redmond Western Regional Climate Center Desert Research Institute Reno Nevada National Park Service Inventory and Monitoring Workshop San Diego, California 2006 February 7-10

Slide 2

A bustling site … around 127,000 gets to every day in January 2006, and 1.55 Gb/day of information/items. Driven to a great extent by client demands.

Slide 3

Some Prehistory Long contribution with western asset administration offices Climate Reference Network Project. Gone to 35-40 western parks. A few littler ventures Crater Lake water spending plan and atmosphere studies since 1986 (NPS) Channel Islands (NPS/USGS) Southwest Alaska Network (NPS) Central Alaska Network (NPS) Yosemite Hydroclimate (NSF and CEC) Aligns with countless exercises of WRCC Aligns intimately with key mission of WRCC Much cover with numerous progressing ventures Many of the important instruments are set up or well into improvement Have great interior access to principle national information authentic/live information

Slide 4

WRCC-NPS Climate Inventory Project Goals Complete the climate/atmosphere stock of each of the 32 I&M Networks (a sum of around 285 stop units) Produce and aid creation of system particular reports Develop and populate a database recording climate stations in and close I&M Parks Evaluate ampleness of scope and recognize real data holes Begin assessment of existing climate and atmosphere observing conventions Produce formats for checking conventions that can be embraced and individualized by different parks Begin advancement of system and stop particular site pages to get to, show, control and condense information Finish this by Autumn 2006 !

Slide 5

Current Status of Inventories 32 Networks At slightest half should be created about starting with no outside help (15-17 ?) Remaining half are in various phases of readiness Some are basically "done" ? Some are "close" ? Some are "amassing" ? Some are "early" ? Some current reports address a few stages on the double Inventories Design Protocols Some include contractual workers, most are in-house (suggestion to meet 5:30) Effort will include through and through generation sometimes, help and exhortation and recommendations in different cases

Slide 6

Facets of this venture It's confused ! Loads of individuals and systems, with exercises at various stages Will attempt to utilize web to help with coordination, correspondence, status www.wrcc.dri.edu/nps Much material can be found on web. Construct get to techniques to: Basic foundation atmosphere, checking, transfer/download Prototypes and introductory endeavors: CAKN and NCPN Mostly inventories. Some convention & plan, site pages, information get to. Regular circumstance: metadata not attached to information. Terminology At WRCC we call this: NPS Climate Inventory Project Climate systems versus NPS I&M systems Metadata (information about information) versus information (barometrical estimations) Station inventories versus information inventories (the greater part of concentrate is on previous)

Slide 7

Report Template (first will be CAKN, then NCPN) Would like comparative configuration for all reports "Climate and Climate Inventory: NPS XXXX Network" 0. Official rundown Intro, reason and objectives. Why doing this? General foundation. Which parks, fundamental atmosphere, spatial and fleeting variables. Maps, tables, figures as required. Philosophy used to get material. Atmosphere systems (national, provincial, nearby), metadata tables, station area maps, information areas if known. Proposals, recommendations, rules. General contemplations that apply to all locales. Particular contemplations that apply to this system. Crevices in scope. Duplications. Organization and utilizing openings. References, sites, contacts. Informative supplement: Descriptions or pointers to more itemized portrayals of significant national, local, or authoritative watching systems. Reference section if necessary: Additional maps. Electronic addendums or accompanyment: outline, area tables

Slide 10

Current Status Have employed a post-doc to supervise the day by day subtle elements of the venture. Christopher Davey, CSU (Ecology and Atmospheric Science) Strong enthusiasm for station siting Personnel at WRCC Kelly Redmond – Overall venture oversight and coordination Christopher Davey – Inventory arrangement, point by point extend mgmt Grant Kelly – Access to metadata, web improvement, shapes for entering metadata Greg McCurdy – Computer administrator, applications, information bolsters, web, conventions, field Dave Simeral – GIS, field support, frosty and wind and rain work Web pages a work in progress Planning on a technique for remote metadata section through web. Counting photographs. A few visits, WRCC with Fort Collins, local gatherings, national meeting First report will be CAKN, then NCPN. Speculative calendar arranged. Presently permitting around a month and a half for every Network, covering. Drawing altogether on past reports. Loads of cover in numerous subjects. Will probably post for audit for a brief span.
