Data Systems Users Working Group



A Data Systems Users Working Group (DSUWG) has been formed, at the request of NASA's Office of Space Science (OSS), by members of the space science community concerned with improving the yield, significance, and pace of scientific output from the massive, and growing, data base generated by spacecraft observations. The first meeting of the DSUWG was convened at Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) on September 11 and 12, 1980, by cochairmen James L. Green (MSFC) and Eugene W. Greenstadt (TRW). Most of the attendees of the first meeting were investigators long occupied with handling large data sets or coordinating measurements of separate but related space plasma variables. This particularly included members of the Atmosphere Explorer (AE) team.
