Council of Data Facilities (CDF)

What we do: Connect data facilities, especially those that include Earth science datasets, and provide a collective voice for CDF members.

Why we do it: Geoscience data standards and stewardship require collaboration and communication.

The Council of Data Facilities (CDF) is a federation of existing and emerging geoscience data facilities that serves as an effective cyberinfrastructure foundation for domain and interdisciplinary earth system science.

CDF has served as an important organization for data facilities under EarthCube. With the end of EarthCube, we see ESIP as a synergistic place to continue the CDF work.

Join CDF every second Friday of the month at noon Eastern.
