    v13 v14  
    5555 * Vocab server (Roy): new API v2 live bv end Feb.  
    5656 
    57  * CSML (Andrew): CSML2 powerpoint overview. Station name missing, or more general problem of passing relevant metadata through to CSML via 'metadata' tag, e.g. for finding and labelling in DX/vis stages. Documentation coming... though CSML1 doc was very comprehensive. DP's need to also talk with Dom for advice on CSML generation. Talk to Peter and Helen re Swath feature - e.g. I think the 'Time' value seen in Grid should be in Swath too, could be 'Reference time', or 'Start/End Times'; why not inherit Swath from Grid just adding extra fields?

    59  * Collaborations (Sue): MDIP deadlines approaching. NERC Metadata Gateway replaced by 1 March - so DP's must QC their records before then. EC INSPIRE - free access to data, final agreement allows Met Office to charge for certain data. Defra Climate Impacts Project (CDIP) (Ag).

     61 * Priorities given 20 weeks development time left (Bryan): run down on issues - Data services, Service bindings. 
     62 
     63 * DX issues (Ag): DX will work by the end of NDG2, but needs 3 months of a programmer to help. Won't handle swaths. Bryan says separate the back/front ends. A backend between CSML and WxS may be straightforward, just has to getFeature. But Andrew is saying that is just delivering an XML document via WFS. 
     64 
     65 * Andrew's proposal for differencing capability using WFS to get CSML then DataService to get the relevent netCDFs. There must be missing parts of the interface that will need significant development.

     72Hi Matthew, 
     73 
     74I'm actually in a meeting right now, but briefly, I got through half of your paper on the train yesterday, and the rest on the way back tonight; sorry not to have done this sooner. I am very pleased to see that you have achieved real correlations with the frontal locations and that this forms a significant part of the story. I would certainly appreciate the opportunity to contribute as a co-author on this. The front maps I provided are not as yet a 'standard' NEODAAS (new name for RSDAS service) product or available elsewhere, and relies on my development of these techniques. So I view the front maps as a research contribution to your paper beyond the supply of SST data from NEODAAS; I believe I explained this at the start of your project. 
     75 
     76I can also assist with improving the description of the front map methodology, and proof-reading the manuscript as there are several areas that are unclear or confusing: I'll do these as 'track changes' on the Word doc. There may be a repeating problem with your description of gradients in K units, whereas it should be K km-1; or maybe you are referring to the temperature difference across the whole front rather than a gradient. As the front mapping is a fairly novel technique I'd recommend showing a figure of one (or a few) 3-day map prior to the smoothed version; this is so the reader appreciates the characteristics of your data. I'll let you know if I've got further suggestions tomorrow. 
     77 
     78Let me know whether this is all OK with you. 
     79Best regards, 
     80Peter
