On 21 April 2015, the GHRC team met with Dr. Gerald Heymsfield, Principal Investigator for the HIWRAP instrument of the NASA EV-1 Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel mission. The discussion focused GHRC DAAC data submission requirements, particularly CF-compliant metadata to be added to netCDF data files. Data documentation and citation were also discussed.
