The committee on Earth observation satellites (CEOS) was created in 1984. Major civil agencies responsible for Earth observation satellite programmes, and international user organizations are members. The CEOS has two working groups, the working group on information systems and services (WGISS), and the working group on calibration and validation (WGCV). In conjunction with the International group of funding agencies for global change research (IGFA) CEOS has also begun development of the integrated global observing strategy (IGOS). In the context of the work of CEOS plenary and the developing IGOS, the WGCV provides a forum for calibration and validation information exchange, co-ordination and co-operative activities. This paper describes the WGCV's perspectives and plans for calibration and validation.
