Back to Partnership -- The following nine applications have been posted for review by the Partnership Committee
The following applications have been submitted for the Spring/Summer 2015 ESIP New Member Class.
Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies, Florida State University (COAPS) - ESIP-II (primarily a research center)
The Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies (COAPS) is a center of excellence performing interdisciplinary research in ocean-atmosphere-land-ice interactions to increase our understanding of the physical, social, and economic consequences of climate variability. COAPS hosts a marine data center specializing in underway observations from research vessels and remotely-sensed data from satellites. The data center actively collects, quality evaluates, and distributes data in delayed-mode to the marine climate community.
Center for Research in Water Resources (CRWR) - ESIP-II (primarily a research center)
CRWR at the University of Texas at Austin has been at the core of the CUAHSI organization since its beginnings. CRWR conducts research in hydrology and hydraulics on a regional and national scale.
US Global Change Research Program GCIS Team (USGCRP GCIS) - ESIP-II (primarily a research center)
The US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), a confederation of 13 agencies active in global change research, has established the Global Change Information System (GCIS) to better coordinate and integrate the use of federal information products on changes in the global environment and the implications of those changes for society. The GCIS is a web-based resource for traceable, sound global change data, information, and products. Designed for use by scientists, decision makers, and the public, the GCIS provides coordinated links to a select group of information products produced, maintained, and disseminated by government agencies and organizations.
Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) - ESIP-II (primarily a research center)
The mission of MBARI is to achieve and maintain a position as a world center for advanced research and education in ocean science and technology, and to do so through the development of better instruments, systems, and methods for scientific research in the deep waters of the ocean. MBARI emphasizes the peer relationship between engineers and scientists as a basic principle of its operation. All of the activities of MBARI must be characterized by excellence, innovation, and vision.
University of New Mexico Library - ESIP-III (primarily applications and education)
The University Libraries at the University of New Mexico support the Earth science community through the delivery of research support services including data management planning support; instruction and training in research strategies, technologies, and data management; development of Earth science research collections (both physical and digital) consisting of publications, databases, and data; and hosting and support for research data management infrastructure including a collaborative data management system, a collaborative software development and version control platform, and UNM's institutional repository for both documents and data.
Liquid Robotics Inc - ESIP-I (primarily a data center/archive)
Liquid Robotics Inc is the company behind the WaveGlider, a sea surface, wave propelled, solar powered, robotic oceanography platform. Wavegliders carry a variety of physical, chemical and biological sensors, and conduct data collection missions of varying durations, world-wide. Wavegliders are used by numerous academic partner institutions (e.g. MBARI, WHOI, NOAA, Scripps), individual research labs, as well as on missions by private companies.
University of California Natural Reserve System (UCNRS) - ESIP-II (primarily a research center)
The UC Natural Reserve System is a network of protected natural areas throughout California. Its 39 sites include more than 756,000 acres, making it the largest university-administered reserve system in the world. Most major state ecosystems are represented, from coastal tidepools to inland deserts, and lush wetlands to Sierra Nevada forests. The reserves also serve as a gateway to more than a million acres of public lands. Founded in 1965 to provide undisturbed environments for research, education, and public service, the Natural Reserve System contributes to the understanding and wise stewardship of the earth.
