  "abstract": "<p>The&nbsp;GHRSST&nbsp;Climate Data Assessment Framework (CDAF) provides authoritative, comparable information about&nbsp;GHRSST&nbsp;datasets that allows users to make their own judgement on the suitability of&nbsp;SST&nbsp;datasets for use as Climate Data Records (CDRs) in their applications. The CDAF is described in the present report,&nbsp;produced by the&nbsp;GHRSST&nbsp;CDR-Technical Advisory Group.</p>\n\n<p>The CDAF is split into four main sections:</p>\n\n<ol>\n\t<li>&nbsp;Basic information</li>\n\t<li>&nbsp;Assessment information</li>\n\t<li>&nbsp;Review of information</li>\n\t<li>&nbsp;Approval and publication of information</li>\n</ol>\n\n<p>The CDAF Task Team (TT) provides a community accessible tool which facilitates the production of the CDAF metrics (section 2 above) so helping producers provide the requisite information to the CDAF. The TT provides an easy-to-use support tool based on open source resources. The tool supports users of&nbsp;SST&nbsp;datasets, enabling them to understand the suitability of&nbsp;GHRSST&nbsp;datasets for use as CDRs. The datasets are required to be in GDS2.0 format and available for a minimum 10 year time period.</p>\n\n<p>The tool and product summaries will be hosted in a web resource. The users, after downloading the tool, will use their own resources to run Python notebook.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Resources:</strong></p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>About the&nbsp;CLIMATE DATA ASSESSMENT FRAMEWORK task team: <a href=\"\"></a></li>\n\t<li>About the&nbsp;Climate Data Records-Technical Advisory Group:&nbsp;h<a href=\"http://ttps://\">ttps://</a></li>\n</ul>",
