Support #EarthScienceData Grad Students
Raskin Scholarship – Applications Due March 25
Founded in honor of Rob Raskin, this scholarship helps support graduate students in the Earth or computer sciences with an interest in community evolution of Earth science data systems. The awardee presents at the July ESIP Meeting (remember last year's inspiring presentation with Colette Brown?)
Meeting Data Where it Lives the power of virtual access patterns
Mike Johnson (Lynker, NOAA-affiliate) shared VRT and VSI (curl and S3) virtual data access patterns and how he's used them to work with LCMAP and 3DEP data in integrated climate and data analysis workflows.
IT&I Tech Dive is co-hosted by the USGS Community for Data Integration (CDI).
Collaboration Area Highlights
SWEET Working Sessions
Join the ESIP Semantic Tech Committee to work on enhancing the SWEET Ontology — semantic web for Earth and environmental terminology. The group is specifically looking to review candidate term definitions from multiple vocabularies as well as bug fixes. Everyone is welcome to attend; the next session is Wed, March 15 at 4 p.m. EDT. Join via the ESIP Community Calendar.
Eclipse Kits and the Summer Teacher Workshop
The ESIP Education Committee will hold a workshop in Burlington, Vermont this summer with a focus on the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse, plus additional Earth science topics.
Every participating G6-14 educator will receive an “eclipse kit” with enough safety glasses for students in a typical size classroom to safely experience the eclipse.
ESIP partner CUAHSI is hosting an in-person hackathon “I Hack Water” in the greater Boston area centering around local water issues in April 2023. Meals are provided and there is $5,000 in prizes. Early bird rates end on March 18; registration closes March 28.
OpenAQ Community Ambassador Program (March 22)
The OpenAQ Community Ambassador Program supports emerging air quality leaders in low- and middle-income countries in developing skills to fight air inequality. Over 10 months, Ambassadors receive a $2,000 stipend and interdisciplinary training (with a focus on using data), leadership development, and a supportive professional community to hone skills and expertise in the air quality field. Apply by March 22.
