Earth, Space, and Environmental Science Complex Data Citations Working Group

Status: 
Not endorsed

The ESIP/RDA Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences Interest Group is forming a working group to examine and make recommendations around complex data citations that continue to be challanging.  This working group is preceded by a community-of-practice that began this year building on discussions at the AGU Fall Meeting Data FAIR Town Hall 2020, “Why Is Citing Data Still Hard?”.

We plan to examine three use cases.

Improving the Copernicus Climate Data Store metadata scheme with the RDA metadata standards repository

Following a successful application to the RDA Europe 4.0 open call for Adoption Grants, the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC) began its project to quality check and document the data stored in the Climate Data Store (CDS). The Climate Data Store repository contains various types of data for which summaries are presented at the level of variable and dataset. Adopting and presenting the RDA metadata repository as a trustful reference, and using the various standards gathered there, has helped to improve recommendations on what should be presented in the CDS.

Implementing Data Citation on the Earth Observation Data Centre for Water Resource Monitoring (EODC)

Adopting the RDA Data Citation Recommendations on an openEO. The Earth Observation Data Centre for Water Resource Monitoring (EODC) located in Austria works with high-performance computing services and large amounts of data on a daily basis. Since 2017, it has been part of the consortium implementing the open Earth Observation (openEO) standard, which aims  to standardize communication between EO scientists and data and service providers. It allows scientists to write code one time only and use it on different backend providers, but has the downfall of being not transparent. Adding data citation to the standardized process enables insights into what specific data was used in EO workflows.
