Uncertainty-quantified Climate Data Record (CDR)

A record of satellite observations of a geophysical quantity (such as sea surface temperature) in which estimates of total uncertainty (or error covariance) and/or dominant components of uncertainty (or error covariance) are provided or characterised at pixel-level (and potentially larger) scales. The CDR should be provided with all relevant auxiliary information for the data to be meaningful, including, e.g. time of acquisition, longitude and latitude, solar and viewing angles.
