Back to Ag & Climate Workspace Agenda:

  • Possible (?) shift of telecon time to later in the day (still 1st Tuesday of month)
  • Refresh from Dec. telecon
    • From Brian Wee's presentation on NEON: Interoperability is one area where this Cluster and LTAR probably can best collaborate in a mutually beneficial way (e.g., all measurements consistently done for all sites). LTAR is cognizant of the need for interoperability.
    • From our Cluster's previous discussions, the other two promising areas of collaboration are data products and data archive.
  • Introduce Reid Boehm, new Student Fellow for our Cluster; Doctoral student at U TN; thesis topic: agricultural information
  • Cluster's 2014 plan
    • (1) Inventory of relevant ESIP capabilities

Previous Action: Bill will email request to esip-all re: any members who have collaborated or are collaborating with any USDA agencies.

    • (2) Review of literature and other sources on external (to ESIP) work on climate effects on agriculture
      • Science literature (Reid et al.)
      • USDA agencies, CCPO (Bill et al.)
      • Other sources (e.g., state orgs., Library of Congress) (Nancy et al.)
    • (3) Gap analysis (needs of LTAR) that ESIP can fill

Previous Action: Bill to follow up with Jeff McWhirter on RAMADDA. <== Decided to hold off a bit.

  • Cluster session at ESIP Summer 2014 Meeting, Copper Mtn, CO
    • Possible speakers: Mark Walbridge (LTAR), Simon Liu (NAL), Brad Doorn (NASA HQ, Applied Sciences Program-Water Resources and Agriculture)

Action: Bill to contact all 3 for their availability

    • Other speakers?
    • What should we aim to accomplish?

Participants: Reid B., Arif A., Erin R., Nancy H., James Hemby, 1 other (?), Bill T.

We will aim to have this review of projects and literature plus group map of concepts, plus focus on needs of LTAR
