Title: Standard for Global Navigation Satellite System-Reflectometry (GNSS-R) Data and Metadata Content

Scope: The scope of this effort is to develop a standard for data and metadata content arising from spaceborne Global Navigation Satellite System-Reflectometry (GNSS-R) missions. In particular, this standard would provide a means for describing:
a) the terminology assigned to GNSS-R data and products, such as the product “levels”;
b) the structure and content of the data. This includes, but is not limited to: units of measure, data organization, data description, data encoding and data storage format;
c) the metadata. This includes and is not limited to: metadata lineage, methods and algorithms applied to the data, parameters related to the algorithms, citation information, instrument calibration and characterization, and description of the input signals.
