ESIP Update: Songs inspired by Earth and space

Meet our Ignite@AGU speakers and join us for the live event Wednesday, Dec 13 at 6 PM.

In the ESIP Update this week:

ESIP News and Events

See you at Ignite@AGU

Five minutes. 20 slides. Exactly. Our Ignite@AGU speakers take on the challenge of “less is more” to share their work, stories, and ideas.

We will be at the Great American Music Hall on Wednesday, Dec 13 at 6 PM during the AGU Fall Meeting. The talks will be recorded, but this is a venue and lineup you don't want to miss. No RSVP needed this year. 

But we are looking for song recommendations!

In honor of the rich musical history of our venue, we built an Earth and space-inspired Spotify playlist. Listen and let us know songs to add.

Open Science and Data Help Desk at AGU 2023

We are co-hosting the Open Science and Data Help Desk (booth #1423) at the Open Science Pavilion in the Exhibit Hall during the AGU Fall Meeting.

Join us for demos, bring folks for advice, and catch up with the #EarthScienceData community. 

Share Your Open Science “Stumbles” 

We learn as much — if not more — from mistakes as we do from successes. Fill out this form and share challenges or missteps in implementing open science. The stories you share will inform a session at the Open Science and Data Help Desk on Wednesday, Dec 13 from 2:30-3:30 p.m.
