Register NOW for the ESIP Summer Meeting
NOTE: The Call for Sessions is now open! This Summer, ESIP will be gathering on the campus of Indiana University, Bloomington, where 3 days of workshops, breakouts, and a couple great plenary talks will bring 300 Earth science data experts and data users together to solve problems and share the knowledge we've collected about the Earth system. HERE is the REGISTRATION and Call for Sessions LINK 

ESIP response to NSF cyberinfrastructure needs RFI
ESIP President, Emily Law, invites you to participate:
“Many in our community have expressed interest in providing inputs to the NSF call for advanced cyberinfrastructure needs:
As the leading community in advancing the use of Earth science data, it is in our interest to provide a consolidated ESIP response to this RFI.
You are invited to contribute to this collective response by using the Loomio platform (in conjunction with Google Doc). The platform promotes shared document editing (Google Docs) and discussion (Google Docs and Loomio) and transparent decision making (Loomio).
Please join us by hopping on:
In order to meet the RFI submission due date on April 5, 2017, please complete your edits of the Google Docs (thru Loomio) by March 10. That will allow time to complete discussion by March 24, and to finalize by March 31.

Linking Environmental Data and Samples Symposium (CSIRO)
CSIRO is hosting a symposium “Linking Environmental Data and Samples” (29 May – 03 June 2017, Canberra, AUS).
The symposium will bring together leading researchers in earth and  environmental informatics, to establish the current state of the art in  environmental science data publication and its use of modern web  principles. The focus is on linking data, with a particular interest in  the integration of physical samples with datasets based on these. Key topics include:
– Science drivers for linking environmental data and samples
– Community specific solutions (Marine geoscience and oceanography, Biodiversity, Earth Observation, Mineral Exploration)
– Technical challenges in linked data and persistent identification
– Social and organisational impacts
– Elements of Open Science

DataONE webinar: From Rolling Deck to Repository
Please be reminded of our upcoming Webinar “From Rolling Deck to Repository – Lessons Learned in Managing Data for the US Research Fleet” presented by ESIP Member Robert Arko (Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory). Tuesday March 14th at 0900 am Pacific Time, 1200 noon Eastern Time. Register now via
Abstract:  R2R is the NSF-supported repository for environmental sensor data routinely acquired by U.S. oceanographic research vessels. The research fleet supports hundreds of expeditions around the world each year, ranging from oceans to coasts and estuaries to the Great Lakes. R2R works with an extensive network of partner repositories to link original field data from both sensors and samples, post-field products, global syntheses, and journal articles.

AGI Summer Internships
The American Geosciences Institute will be hiring two interns this summer in our Geoscience Policy and Critical Issues programs – see below for more details of each. The internships are based in Alexandria, VA (just across the river from DC), run for 12 weeks, and come with a fixed stipend of $5000. You must be a U.S. citizen and enrolled in, or have recently completed, a geoscience or geo-related bachelor's or master's degree program to apply. The application deadline for both internships is March 15th.
Geoscience Policy Internship -AGI seeks outstanding geoscience or geo-related students (undergraduate or master's) and recent graduates with a strong interest in federal science policy. Interns will hone their writing and web publishing skills while gaining first-hand understanding of the legislative process and executive branch agencies. Apply here.
Critical Issues Internship – AGI seeks outstanding geoscience or geo-related students (undergraduate or master's) and recent graduates with a strong interest in state and local science policy, science communication, and outreach.  Apply here.

DataONE Summer Internship Program
Please be reminded our application period for the DataONE Summer Internship Program is still open. We have six different project opportunities ranging from search log analysis, provenance queries, semantic annotation, marketing and more.  Applications are being accepted until March 17th 2017. For full information and to apply, visit
