ESIP Data Stewardship Committee Vision

Promote excellence in Earth science data stewardship including preservation, information quality, and development of a cadre of excellent data managers for the future

About Us

The ESIP Data Stewardship Committee develops and fosters practices and standards that ensure continued and reliable information content, quality, access to, and usability of Earth system science data for as long as they are deemed to be of value. As such, we facilitate the long-term preservation, stewardship, and access of Earth system science data, assisting ESIP to achieve its strategic goals. In addition to extensive participation on our committee, our members actively serve in many other external organizations which are nationwide and international in scope. As our activity list is extensive, we invite you to participate in the group.
