ESIP UPDATE: September 5, 2017
 

 

After a great Summer meeting and a quick August breather, ESIP is gearing up for a busy Fall and Winter!
ESIP is looking for new Student Fellows; ESIP Lab will soon be open for proposals; ESIP will be electing new leaders in the Fall; ESIP Winter Meeting call for sessions will be open soon (and also registration), and it’s not too early to start thinking about the big ESIP prizes: the Martha Maiden award, and the ESIP/AGU’s Falkenberg Award. It’s a good time for clusters to reignite their core conversations, so welcome back! HOP on Slack and keep learning and sharing. It’s the ESIP WAY!

Lots going on in and around ESIP this week! Keep up on all the action on Slack! If you are not already on the ESIP Slack team: here is your INVITATION.  If you are on Slack, are you using the Slack App? It’s a much better GUI. Grab it HERE

The ESIP Board is happy to announce that Pat Reiff, long-time ESIPer, has won the best “my ESIP story” contest. With more than 40 entrants—and dozens of dynamite stories—it was really hard to make a final choice. Congrats to Pat, and many thanks to everyone who submitted a story and/or did a video. ESIP is sending Pat her DJI Phantom 3 drone, donated by DJI.

Best, 
Bruce and the ESIP staff

As a part of her video ESIP story, Pat tells us what she thinks the best thing about ESIP is!

Tune in as our speakers describe how they use data from air quality sensors to understand local environmental conditions. This webinar is one in a series of webinars to help communities manage data from air quality projects. The webinars are keeping up the momentum of the Smart City Air Challenge, which encourages communities to deploy hundreds of air quality sensors and make the resulting data open to the public. Register for the webinar todayLearn more about the Smart City Air Challenge.
