During the previous funding period of the EUFAR project (2008 - 2013), several efforts were made to harmonise different processes within the research infrastructure. Common protocols conforming to existing European and American airborne science best practices were developed and disseminated to the EUFAR community. These protocols served only as guidelines for the EUFAR partners and implementation was not mandatory. Since the implementation process is rather a work and time intensive step, we also want to ensure conformance with the broader geo-science community. Thus the compatibility between guidelines of international initiatives working on standards and protocols and the current N7SP products has been assessed and a detailed report of the current situation of existing standard and protocol initiatives on data acquisition and measurements has been completed. The document focuses on the suitability and relevance for EUFAR, and also takes into account initiatives EUFAR is already involved in. Adaptations and modifications to this document will be ongoing as required.
