This paper discusses the concepts and frameworks that will underpin all aspects of the benchmarking and assessment exercise. Its open to review until July 30th. Please do, if you have time and inclination, pop along and have a read and provide a constructive (!) review. The discussion site is at http://www.geosci-instrum-method-data-syst-discuss.net/4/235/2014/gid-4-235-2014.html .
