  Name: CEOS Purge Alert
  Abbreviation:
  Description: The Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS), an international framework for coordinating all spaceborne Earth observation missions, has established a "Purge Alert" service to help to ensure the long-term preservation of valuable Earth observation data. We encourage you to participate in this initiative that enables data archive managers to: 1) advise other archives of Earth observation data holdings scheduled to be destroyed, and 2) offer these data to other archive centers. Sometimes an agency must make the decision to purge data that could be important to help meet the mission requirements of another agency. The CEOS Working Group on Information Systems and Services (WGISS) finds that in this continuing process of assessment, it is helpful to share our information and findings with other data managers before data are purged. To contact the Purge Alert members, send mail to purgealert@wgiss.ceos.org
