The Community Initiative for Emissions Research and Applications, CIERA, was a demonstration project that developed the infrastructure and expertise for interoperability in emissions data and tools. CIERA worked to catalyze emissions research by facilitating:
- the consistent, timely, and transparent development of emissions inventories at all scales;
- evaluations and analyses of emissions datasets; and
- the exchange and communication of emissions information.
CIERA was supported by the US EPA as part of the CyAir project. In March 2013, CIERA was fully integrated with GEIA. Innovations in interoperable data sets and analysis tools and access to bibliographic information that were developed by CIERA have been incorporated into GEIA's web portal. Members of the CIERA development team continue to work on these issues through efforts such as ECCAD and the GEO AQ CoP.
