Botcharova: Database ideas, available data from
IKI-RAS (JUSREX Ku band RAR, ALMAZ SAR,
Database discussion. It is concluded to use mainly the following data:
JUSREX (provided by IKI-RAS)
SIR-C/X- SAR (provided by UHSO)
ERS SAR (provided by POI-RAS)
Furthermore, UHSO has interesting RADARSAT data, and there are some
more interesting data at different places that can be used if desired.
The database will start as a website with quicklook JPGs of the images
with a short description. People who want to work with the data can then
order them directly from the supplying team by FTP or on CD or tape.
Main responsibility for the database is with IKI-RAS, who will design a data submission form and distribute it soon to all partners.
2. Administrative matter
Romeiser: Money distribution etc. - everything appears to be alright.

project, transportation and climate issues, and other constraints, we will try to arrange meetings as follows:
February 2001 Southampton
September 2001 Moscow and / or Nizhny Novgorod
February 2002 MeteoMer site (near Nice)
Summer 2002 St. Petersburg (Leonid Mitnik's second location)
October 2002 Hamburg (end of project)
3. Action items
All : Leave hardcopies of viewgraphs, or send them as soon as possible IKI-RAS: Prepare form
and instructions for data submission
IKI-RAS: Prepare quicklook images and information for the database according to instructions UHSO,
