NDACC-PGN Cooperating Network Agreement

The Cooperating Network Agreement between NDACC and the Pandonia Global Network (PGN) was finalized on 24 June 2020.

As a result of this agreement, Barry Lefer (NASA Headquarters) and Angelika Dehn (also the ESA-ESRIN Representative) have been named PGN Co-Representatives to the NDACC Steering Committee.

PGN provides real-time, standardized, calibrated and verified quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) air quality data. PGN also seeks to coordinate and implement network standards regarding common algorithms and data processing, instrument operating routines, QA/QC, real-time data processing, and data archiving. PGN participants are comprised primarily of governmental and academic researchers and technicians.

Additional information is available on the PGN website:  http://www.pandonia-global-network.org/

We welcome PGN as a Cooperating Network, and we look forward to a long and fruitful collaboration!
