GHRC hosts 2019 User Working Group meeting


The Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) hosted its annual User Working Group meeting on October 22-23, 2019. This meeting is designed to bring experts from the various fields supported by the GHRC to Huntsville. These fields include lightning, severe weather, the Global Precipitation Measuring mission, hurricane sciences, and applications. During the meeting, GHRC provides our responses to the user working group from the previous year, highlights activities since the previous meeting, and states planned activities for the year ahead. The process is interactive as the user working group discusses GHRC’s activities, provides recommendations for the year ahead, as well as provides strategic guidance as to how GHRC should best position itself for the future. This year, the primary focus for GHRC was discussing its role in transitioning to being a cloud-native Distributed Active Archive Center. This included our efforts for the past year to bring our data holdings to the cloud, a demonstration of the field campaign explorer, as well as discussions with the user working group on their recommendations for continued cloud work that can enhance and improve the user experience.
