ESIP Update: Community resilience in Earth science data

Welcome to the ESIP Update #EarthScienceData

ESIP News and Events

New Guest Blog on Community Resilience

In their new article published in the Frontiers in Climate journal, the Community Resilience Cluster explores how communities that are equipped with actionable Earth science data can make impactful resilience decisions based on the best information available. 

A key part is making sure that researchers and organizations gathering and analyzing data also have the tools they need to weave community resilience into their work. Check out the Cluster’s new blog on with resources and inspiration written by ESIP Community Fellow Morgan Wofford.

AGU – NASA Ethics in AI/ML Survey (Due Today, Aug 15)

Across scientific domains, AI and ML are playing increasingly important roles, incorporating more data from more sources. Existing standards for reproducibility and ethics in research can be challenged by AI and ML. This survey via Alchemer is designed to assess your views around some of these challenges, as well as opportunities looking ahead with these technologies. The results will inform the development of ethical standards for the use of AI and ML in research.
