Topic: Report on Testbed accomplishments (Testbed showcase) --

  • Report due. Opportunity for our group to promote our accomplishments in the testbed.
  • Likely presenters: Maggie and Dave, maybe Karen
  • Title: Disaster Lifecycle Testbed Establishing a Collaborative Operating Procedure.
  • Meeting Tues: 11am pacific time.
  • Four talks total, 15 min each.


Topic: Summer Meeting ---

  • Possible session for summer meeting: Evolving data products for disaster community applications. Proposed by Karen.
  • Drought and flood discussion from last session: how can we move forward with this? Look for speakers?
  • In general we need to keep an eye out for speakers and for whether we want to arrange a working session. Possibly related to the testbed?

Topic: Testbed Discussion (still related to summer meeting) ---

  • How can we attract data providing partners who may want to get involved?
  • We could potentially invite them to participate in a session at the summer meeting.
  • Do we have a list of candidate partner organizations? It sounds like we have some orgs in mind but nothing specifically written out yet.
  • Can we scrape a list of funded projects from NASAs applied sciences website? Ken is going to ask the program manager for that list.
  • GEOS: Work going into extreme disaster events and analysis of extreme events, so there is some potential there for collaboration and interaction. Dave Jones has talked with GEOS AIP8 people, who were encouraging collaboration with StormCenter--but no funding. Curious if NOAA has some funding for use cases.
  • Sean Barberie will generate a shared Google Doc so that we can all generate a list of candidate data partners.

Topic: AGU Session Proposal ---

  • Coordinate with Natural Hazards Group to submit one or two sessions (likely one session)--the same group we partnered with last year.
  • EGU is happening this week in Vienna, we can look at their Natural Hazards session for ideas about what we may want to incorporate.
  • We will want to include the testbed work.
  • AGU is due this month (the 27th).

Topic: New time discussion ---

  • We will try first Thurs 1PM Pacific Time for May and June and see how well it works. Thus, may 7th.

Other comments ---

  • Whitehouse decision to relate climate to public health; should we be considering public health as an element of the disaster cluster?
  • No reason to exclude it. Let's see where it can fit in.
