Guest Blog: Air Quality Affects Birds

Olivia Sanderfoot is a birder who studies the impacts of air pollution on our feathered friends and was a 2022 Ignite@AGU speaker, co-hosted by NASA’s Earth Science Division and ESIP at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting.

In her guest blog, Sanderfoot builds off her Ignite@AGU talk and encourages collaboration across Earth science disciplines to save birds. The article includes beautiful, detailed photos of birds by Graham Montgomery and Sevilla Rhoads.

Expanding Access July 2023 ESIP Meeting

Share our scholarship for students from underrepresented groups in ESIP. Help us expand access to Earth science data and the professional networks of our community. 

Note from our ESIP Community Director

Hello ESIP Community,

Patty (ESIP Operations Director) and I just returned from visiting Burlington, VT, ahead of the upcoming ESIP Meeting.

It was great to see the space and envision all of the data-related challenges and opportunities we will work on together in-person and online in July!

There is one week left to propose a session: Not sure about submitting a session or nervous to hit the submit button?

Here are five ways to help you move forward:

  1. Read 5 Tips to Organize a Great ESIP Meeting Session
  2. Check out past meeting session descriptions and last year's event for inspiration.
  3. Looking for collaborators or speakers? Share your idea in the ESIP Slack  #general channel.
  4. Specifics help in your proposal. But there will be time to shape your idea after submission. Stay tuned for design workshop and virtual office hours with our design expert, Charley Haley, as well as opportunities to discuss with ESIP staff. 
  5. Have an idea for a presentation, but not a full-fledged session? Sign up during registration for a poster or demo during the Research Showcase. 

Thank you all for your thoughtful session contributions and do reach out if we can help between now and the submission deadline of Monday, May 8.

Megan Carter
ESIP Community Director

See you at the 2023 July ESIP Meeting!
