The GHRSST-PP Regional/Global Task Sharing (R/GTS) Implementation Framework

The GHRSST-PP R/GTS implementation framework was first proposed at the Second GHRSST-PP Science Team Meeting held in Tokyo Japan, 2002 (see report here ). In this framework, the data processing and management tasks associated with the application and exchange of large satellite data sets are distributed between international institutions which share the load. This allows regional centres to provide a slick service to the local/national/regional user community by benefiting directly from the work of other regional and global centre activities. GHRSST-PP data products are generated in a common netCDF format so that it is easy to provide and use data from neighbouring RDAC systems.

GHRSST-PP L2P data products are gathered together at Global Data Analysis Centres (GDAC) where they are disseminated to operational agencies for use in ocan and NWP forecasting applications. In addition, all GHRSST-PP products are archived at the Long Term Stewardship and Reanalysis Facility (LTSRF) based at the National Oceanographic Data Centre (NODC). The LTSRF will provide Climate Data Record ( CDR ) SST products in a delayed mode starting in late 2006.

The Figure below provides a summary of the data and information flow within the GHRSST-PP R/GTS framework and convieniently identifies the major GHRSST-PP components.
