Name: Earth observation parameter
Acronym: EOP
Description: In the context of the URR, an Earth observation parameter is a quantity that can be observed or quantified in other ways (e.g., as the output of a model. It is important to notice that EOPs should not be specific in terms of a product. For example, "precipitation" is an EOP, but "precipitation accumulated over 24 hours" is not an EOP. The fact, that a value accumulated over 24 hours is required would have to be specified in a requirement. Likewise, "elevation" is an EOP, while "Digital Elevation Model" is not an EOP, but rather has to be specified in a requirement based on the EOP "elevation."
