Appendix D Terms of Reference for NOAA’s Data Archiving and Access Requirements (DAAR) Working Group Provide scientific advice and broad direction to NOAA regarding the wide range of data, information, and products that NOAA should archive and how NOAA can best provide access to this information. The Data Archiving and Access Requirements (DAAR) Working Group will evalu- ate data archiving and access requirements from all of NOAA’s observing systems and computational models, as well as non-NOAA information as specified below DAAR will: 1. Prioritize data sets and products that NOAA should archive. These data sets can be reported from NOAA observing systems and other observing systems operated by Federal and non-Federal agencies, and organizations. 2. Make specific recommendations with respect to data access. 3. Provide advice on an ongoing basis as data and IT technology evolve and change. 4. Report at a minimum of once per year to the NOAA Science Advi- sory Board. 5. Establish and dissolve subcommittees, as appropriate, that address specific issues related to data archive and data access. 112

APPENDIX D 113 Initially, the DAAR will: • Use external documents as an aid in the DAAR decision process, e.g., 1) NRC letter report outlining principles and guidelines as to what NOAA should archive. 2) Longer NRC report completed in FY07 which would include principles and guidelines regarding data and information archive and access, 3) Government Internal Review of NOAA’s Comprehensive Large Array-Data Stewardship System (CLASS). • Evaluate CLASS data archive/access requirements as an initial DAAR task as CLASS is expected to evolve into the preferred architecture for all NOAA data archive and access systems.
