ESIP Update: #EarthScienceData

Welcome to the ESIP Update. Thanks to everyone who joined the July meeting. 

ESIP News and Events

Meeting Highlights Webinar

The ESIP community gathered virtually and in person last week. If you missed the meeting or want to hear about specific sessions, catch the ESIP Meeting Highlights Webinar on Wednesday, August 17 from 3-4:30 p.m. EDT.

From the future of open science to tutorials on, AI-ready data, and PANGEO, the breakout sessions, workshops, and Unconference showcase community-driven innovation and collaboration. The three plenaries leaned into the gray spaces, ethics, and eye-opening challenges inherent in the theme “Data for All People.” Catch a recap of the 2022 July ESIP Meeting during the highlights webinar and and stay tuned for full recordings of our meeting sessions to be released on the ESIP YouTube Channel in early August.

New Blog – Trains, No Planes, and Fewer Automobiles

Participants in ESIP care about our meetings’ sustainability and impact. Through photos and short essays, several attendees of the 2022 July ESIP Meeting share why they chose alternative travel. Read the new post and more stories on, ESIP's blog Merge.

“Data for All” T-shirt Fundraiser Open through Aug 10

ESIP's theme for 2022 is Data For All People. This fun t-shirt, designed by our friends at Element 84, showcases your work and style, plus it supports ESIP's mission at the same time. 

The fundraiser closes Wednesday, Aug 10. There is a 21 order minimum and there will be full refunds if the goal is not reached. But we are very close!

Open call for proposals for AGU sessions (Due Aug 3)
