ESIP UPDATE: 08.05.2019

Good Morning ESIP,

This Monday Update begins this week with a very warm welcome to our three newest Partner Organizations! You can find out more about them and view their partnership applications below:

Axiom Data Science
Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN)
ESS-DIVE Archive

I encourage you to join the Summer Meeting Highlights Webinar this Thursday, where you can expect to see numerous ESIP community members give lightning talks that share key takeaways from the plenaries, breakout sessions, and more. Whether you missed the Summer Meeting altogether or you want to know what happened in sessions you couldn't make it to, this webinar is for you.

Looking for great reads this week? Check out Making Data Matter with Mike Daniels, where Mike reflects on progress toward making data matter over his nearly 40 year career at NCAR, including ESIP's unique and important role. You may also enjoy this press release about the ESIP Summer Meeting. It is an excellent primer for the ESIP Summer Meeting Highlights Webinar described above!

Finally, if you have content you would like to see shared in a future Monday Update, please let me know.

Have a wonderful week,

Megan Carter Orlando
ESIP Community Director

GreenTech 2019 Conference: Innovating Environmental Protection for the Future
The next 50 years of environmental protection will not look like the first 50—they will be driven by technology as much as by regulation. Join us in Seattle, Washington, for a two-day conference where we will explore innovative and transformative technologies—drones, artificial intelligence, sensors, blockchain, and biotechnology among others—and the unique opportunities—and challenges—they present for protecting the environment. Engage with a diverse group of stakeholders at this one-of-a-kind event, which will include demonstrations, discussions, and dialogue. Learn more and register by early registration deadline of 8/1 here.

AGU Data Visualization and Storytelling Competition
Powerful visuals can often evoke excitement and emotion, driving a deeper level of engagement with the audience and the data and subject matter being presented. The AGU Data Visualization and Storytelling Competition is a contest that encourages creativity and data sharing in a new way. It is open to undergraduate students and graduate students who are legal U.S. residents. Competition winners will receive travel grants funded by AGU, complimentary registration to the AGU Fall Meeting, and the opportunity to present their visually-based story on the NASA Hyperwall. This AGU competition is funded by a generous grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Learn more and apply by 9/4 here.
