  • Discussion of comments on IWDW-WAQS Data Use Agreement received by Stewards group. It is noted that MG encouraged keeping language as simple as possible so as to encourage use of DW. KB suggested adding language covering data uploads to DW; The group agreed that such language could be added at a future time as necessary to accommodate incoming data. Following a brief discussion, the text of the updated agreement was approved.

  • Request #3282. Keep TM as Steward on this project. Little further DW action is required because ENVIRON already has data.
  • #80 TT will use EPA's 03 transport modeling platform - we will ask Tammy for an update and to possibly cancel DW request
  1. 3309 request 2011 WRF input files and geogrid files for the 12 km and 4 km domains - Gail Steward
  2. 3297 request for approval for alternate use of data already provided to contractor - Gail Steward.
  3. 3288 filling - see notes

Action Items

  • Rodger will finalize and post revised Data Use agreement. Send copy to Cooperators, and inform individuals who made previous requests to DW.
