GRUAN Analysis Team for Network Design and Operations Research

This post provides basic information about the GRUAN Analysis Team for Network Design and Operations Research. The team was an (unexpected) outcome of the 1st GRUAN Implement and Coordination Meeting (ICM1) in Norman, Oklahoma, in March 2009. As an informal and new team, its work plan is flexible and current projects are in preliminary stages; this post is meant as an initial report for the GRUAN community. The team will provide a more thorough report on its activities and plans at the 2nd GRUAN Implement and Coordination Meeting in Payerne, Switzerland, in March 2010.

The following paragraphs from an e-mail by John Dykema describes how co-location and coincidence could be formalized.  As an example, the measurements of a temperature profile by a sensor on a balloon and a profile retrieved from microwave radiometry are assumed.

Once we have two well-characterized sensors with rigorously assessed and validated uncertainties, then we can make robust recommendations on co-location.
