Provenance Collection and Display for the AMSR-E SIPS


This project brings together a team of NASA and university researchers with expertise in NASA Earth science data systems, science algorithm development, and provenance collection/dissemination. The team is applying provenance collection and representation tools to the generation of NASA’s AMSR-E standard products, with an initial focus on sea ice products. The AMSR-E SIPS generates Level 2 and Level 3 data products from AMSR-E observations, which are key data sets for research in both the Climate Variability and Change andWater and Energy Cycle focus areas. Provenance and context will be presented to the AMSR-E data community via an interactive web application. An initial focus on Sea Ice processing has allowed the project to engage the Sea Ice science team and user community in customizing the provenance tools for NASA Earth science data.
