IG Weather, climate and air quality RDA 9th Plenary meeting

Meeting title

Weather, climate and air quality Interest group roadmap definition and future plans

Short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group: 

The main goals of the group are to:
* Encourage weather, climate and air quality communities to enforce the data curation by converging to common ontologies and metadata, defining or proposing standards in collaboration with the already working RDA Metadata IG
* Work on open data/open science initiative fostering the adoption of technologies (i. e. PIDs generation) which facilitate experiments reproducibility
* Involve communities like ENES (Earth System modelling), ESIWACE (Centre of Excellence in Simulation of Weather and Climate) and ENVRI (environmental research)
* Participate in Data Sharing Infrastructure like EUDAT and the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF)
