Data Collection Sub-Committee Curt Barrett, Coordinator


(a part of the NHWC Executive Program Committee)


Provide a forum to promote the best practices, technologies, and tools available to collect high-quality hydrologic and weather data that are the basis for warnings sent out to protect life, property, and the environment. Encourage the utilization of a broad spectrum of observation approaches from in-situ observations to remotely sensed measurement platforms. Advance the development of sound monitoring systems based on best practices in data and meta-data collection and transmission, data and metadata validation and quality control, visualization, and product development and dissemination in order to provide the best detection, decision-making, and notification of an event that would warrant warning and evacuation of the affected populace. Support the need for proper metadata and data archiving for studies facilitating system improvements, understanding responses to historical extreme events and tracking the effects of long term changes in climate and infrastructure.
