1. ESIP Program Committee updates (Matt M.)

2. Invited presentation: Mike Daniels (NCAR), "Cloud-Hosted Real-time Data Services for the Geosciences (CHORDS)"

  • CHORDS, funded by the NSF EarthCube program, is a real-time data services infrastructure (https://www.earthcube.org/group/chords) that will provide an easy-to-use system to acquire, navigate and distribute real-time data streams via cloud services and the Internet. It will lower the barrier to these services for small instrument teams, employ data and metadata formats that adhere to community accepted standards, and broaden access to real-time data for the geosciences community.

3. Invited Presentation: Shelley Stall (AGU), "Enabling FAIR Data - Project Update"

  • The Laura and John Arnold Foundation has awarded a grant to a coalition of groups representing the international Earth and space science community, convened by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), to develop standards that will connect researchers, publishers, and data repositories in the Earth and space sciences to enable FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) data – a concept first developed by Force11.org – on a large scale. The partnership currently includes AGU, the Earth Science Information Partners, and Research Data Alliance, and has support from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Nature, Science, AuScope, National Computational Infrastructure of Australia, the Australian National Data Service, and the Center for Open Science.

4. Open discussion: Any DS-related sessions/activities coming up at AGU or other conferences (e.g., AGU Data Help Desk sessions)?
