Status of DW Data Requests

A number of data requests currently on the DW are likely extraneous and should be deleted. Valid requests should be followed up with an email to the requestor and/or sponsor. Dustin will take a shot at creating a consolidated data request/project "report" page. Rodger will follow up with valid requests.
In the case of ARS's request for 2011 emissions in TSS format, Shawn will follow up with Cassie and Scott as to the format requirements. In general, the DW will not cater to special format requests.

Data request life cycle

The general policy is that the request or project sponsor, and Tom, will sign off on valid requests before they are approved. The project sponsor will agree to oversee the project. There was discussion about having direct data requests initiate a project, possibly at the point in the data request lifecycle where the request has been submitted by the data requestor and approved by the PM. Furthermore, there should be guidance on the DW website that informs users on the type of metadata we would like to see with each data request; expectations of PM associated with request, etc.

ARMS and O&G web page

Rodger will follow up on ARMS platform with AECOM; will follow up with Tom on O&G Working group web page.

DW timelines

The DW development team will have a better handle on development timelines following the Feb 20 meeting with Mike George one next CIRA SOW. MOdeling contract may be extended through Oct., and WESTAR will have next contract go out for competitive bid.

2011a eratta

2011a PM BCs will be replaced with GEOS-Chem fields. BCs and CAMx output will be replaced for 2011a2 platform. Note in errata wiki.
