While there have been previous talks and posters about the International Surface Temperature Initiative, as well as the overall structure of the Global Land Surface Databank, last week marked one of the first times our group presented work on the merged product in a public fashion. I was given the opportunity to present at the 93rd Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society. The room was full of climatologists on the national and international scale, and we even gained a few contacts in hopes to receive more data for our databank effort.
In order to continue our aims to be open and transparent, the abstract from the conference can be found here, and the presentation used can be located here. The presentation was also recorded, and once AMS puts the audio online, we will also try and link to it.
