GES DISC Instrument Keyword Change

by cloeser » Wed May 11, 2022 12:24 pm America/New_York

Good afternoon -

Last year, we requested a new Instrument keyword for the TROPICS mission. After gathering more information from the science team, we request that it be modified.

Original Request:
TMWS > TROPICS Microwave Spectrometer

New Request:
TMS > TROPICS Millimeter-wave Sounder

TROPICS User Guide for reference: https://docserver.gesdisc.eosdis.nasa.gov/public/project/TROPICS/TROPICS.UserGuide.pdf

Thanks!

@cloeser

I am reviewing your keyword request now and I can make that change but I wanted to confirm if the keyword hierarchy is still appropriate or if a change is needed there as well. Currently it is:
Instruments > Earth Remote Sensing Instruments > Passive Remote Sensing > Spectrometers_Radiometers > Spectrometers

Please let me know. Thanks.

We think this would be best:

Instruments > Earth Remote Sensing Instruments > Passive Remote Sensing > Spectrometers/Radiometers > Radiometers

Thank you!

Carlee,

This change has been made and will be released to production this Friday, May 20 as part of our normal keyword release. See https://gcmd.earthdata.nasa.gov/kms/concept/32be908e-2a4f-4d38-8e32-57bc13d70861?version=draft.
