Overview

In the Linked Earth context, a working group (WG) is a self-organized coalition of knowledgeable experts, whose activities are governed herewith. This page is dedicated to the discussion of data and metadata standards for Inferred Variables of floods, and aims to formulate a set of recommendations for such a standard and a common classification used across all kind of proxy types. It will be closely linked to the hydrology class. This working group is an initiative of the Pages Floods Working Group.

Flood estimations can be derived from various archive types, like

so this data standard will also be a special subgroup of the Cross Archive Metadata, standardizing Inferred Variables.

Members of 'Floods Working Group'

    This working group contains only the following member.


Flood Parameters
Parameters used for Flood Data

Flood Parameters

The Pages Flood Working Group started to collect parameters, relevant for analyzing, comparing and disseminating flood data. Most of them already exist (at least similar) in the LiPD definition, but some may need to be added.

Following main areas can be distingushed:

  • Source
  • Location
  • Timing
  • Classification
  • References
