ESIP Update: Meet our 2023 Community Fellows!

Welcome our new (and returning) cohort of ESIP Community Fellows.


Welcome our 2023 Community Fellows

ESIP Community Fellows are graduate students interested in bridging the gap between informatics and Earth science. This year's class of Community Fellows is a mix of returning fellows and new faces. They span many Earth science and data science fields, bringing together a strong team with interdisciplinary interests and enthusiasm.

Will you be at the AGU Fall Meeting?

Connect with the #EarthScienceData Community

Tell us about your poster, talk, town hall, or booth. Add your info and update links in the 2022 list and we will help share our #EarthScienceData community's work more broadly.

Join the Open Science and Data Help Desk at AGU

The Open Science & Data Help Desk, our largest event to date, will be hosted by ESIP and AGU during the 2022 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting from Dec 12-15.

Through the Help Desk, researchers can learn about skills and techniques that will help further their research and make their data and software more open and FAIR. The Open Science & Data Help Desk will be staffed with experts from the Earth science informatics community to answer data-related questions and to demo useful resources.

What's Happening in Earth Science Data

Informational Webinar: Radiant Earth Crop Detection Challenge (Dec 7)

Radiant Earth just launched their latest data competition with NASA Harvest. The goal of this open challenge is to detect crop field boundaries for Rwandan smallholder farmers using multispectral observations. Want to participate or learn more? Join us for a Q&A webinar on December 7 at noon EST.

Scalable and Computationally Reproducible Approaches to Arctic Research (March 27-31)

This is a five-day, in-person workshop at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis in Santa Barbara, California. The workshop will provide Arctic researchers with an introduction to advanced topics in computationally reproducible research in python, including software and techniques for working with very large datasets.
