===COOPEUS - ESIP-I (primarily data centers)===
:Application excerpt: Climate Data Solutions, LLC is a woman-owned small business created to address the need for climate data and information in today's world. The complex nature of climate- and weather-related impacts requires a cross sectoral, data rich approach to decison making and planning. Climate Data Solutions, LLC has the expertise to help businesses and communities better formulate their climate problems, design solutions that minimize risk and enhance opportunties, and identify and access the right data and tools for the tasks. The interaction with user members of the ESIP community may help enhance the private-public partnership for data sharing, I am very interested in helping the decision making community better access and understand the vast amount of data available. I am hoping to find other ESIP members with similar goals.

:Application excerpt: The role of COOPEUS is to guide and coordinate interoperability efforts among environmental research infrastructures in the EU and US. COOPEUS itself does not produce technology or infrastructure but all COOPEUS partners have independent contributions in their domains. All COOPEUS partners have independently developed software that are registered with the GEOSS Brokering Service and are freely available to the public.

:Application excerpt: E-DECIDER provides decision support primarily for earthquake disaster response. The platform converts geophysical simulations and remote sensing observations into data products relevant to emergency preparedness and response communities. We utilize remote sensing data and Earth science models to respond to disasters and working in partnership with the Disasters cluster and the Federation would enhance collaboration with other projects in the field as well as provide the opportunity to test our platform.

===GeoGateway - ESIP-II (primarily research)===
:Application excerpt: We currently support over 1200 institutions with through our networks and support software. However, most work in networks has been for network engineers, and we believe that trend needs to shift. We are currently putting in place usability studies and advocacy support for end users in a way that has not previously been done by a primary networking group, with Earth sciences as one of our preliminary focus areas. We believe that by becoming a member of the ESIP community we will better be able to assist geoscience researchers sharing data over high speed networks, and will be better positioned to let our end users know about the variety of tools and services supported by other ESIP members.

:The National Science Foundation supports a fleet of academic research vessels operating throughout the world's oceans. These vessels routinely deploy a suite of underway environmental sensors, operating like mobile observatories. The Rolling Deck to Repository (R2R) Program is funded by NSF to ensure that these data are routinely captured, cataloged, described, and submitted to the appropriate national repositories for long-term public access. R2R works in close collaboration with the University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) and the NOAA National Data Centers.

:Application excerpt: The largest and longest-lived ecological network in the United States, LTER provides the scientific expertise, research platforms, and long-term datasets necessary to document and analyze environmental change. The Network brings together a multi-disciplinary group of more than 2000 scientists and graduate students. The 25 LTER sites encompass diverse ecosystems in the continental United States, Alaska, Antarctica and islands in the Caribbean and the Pacific—including deserts, estuaries, lakes, oceans, coral reefs, prairies, forests, alpine and Arctic tundra, urban areas, and production agriculture. LTER is recognized internationally as one of the best organized and most successful groups conducting research in ecology. Not only has the program pioneered the development of data sets to study the processes taking place over long time periods at multiple sites, it has also provided a new paradigm for networking, data management, and efficient allocation of limited resources. However, not all data are gathered directly by LTER scientists and many rely on existing earth data products for their research. Partnering with ESIP would enhance information exchange about existing and needed data resources.

:Application excerpt: VMC's primary mission is to serve Vermont through improved understanding of long-term trends, annual conditions, and interdisciplinary relationships of the physical, chemical, and biological components of forested ecosystems in Vermont.

However, one role of the VMC is to act as a central point of discovery of new data sources for research or integration with existing monitoring, and partnership in the Federation would increase our institutional awareness here in Vermont of both new data sources and examples of access from other places. In addition, many of our cooperators are increasingly using models requiring intensive earth science data inputs, and we could be a greater resource in this effort through exposure to the great work that other Federation partners are doing.
