create-ip Governance Overview
CREATE-IP has a working advisory committee of leaders of the international reanalysis efforts. The committee has representatives from NASA/GSFC GMAO, NOAA/NCEP, NOAA/ESRL, ECMWF and JMA. Each member is considered an expert in reanalysis. The committee provides advice on such issues as standardization of CREATE-IP, approval of new data sets, and documentation. They are also willing to participate in future reanalysis comparisons.
CREATE-IP will be coordinated by the NASA GSFC Climate Modeling Data Services team (CDS) because this organization has the expertise to customize the modification of the reanalysis data as it is produced by the centers and publish the data on the ESGF data portal maintained by the group. CDS is providing access to the various services and will coordinate documentation of the various reanalysis products as a service to the reanalysis community.
The Ocean Reanalyses Intercomparison Project (ORA-IP) is coordinated by the Global Synthesis and Observations Panel (GSOP), part of Climate and Ocean: Variability, Predictability and Change (CLIVAR), one of the four core projects of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).
