EarthCube's Strategic Science Plan - open for comment

The EarthCube Science Committee has drafted a Strategic Science Plan (SSP). Over the next few months the SSP will be refined prior to being discussed at the All Hands Meeting and eventually forwarded to the NSF.

The first stages in the SSP’s development involved reviewing what has been accomplished and how that might mesh with the challenges faced by the geosciences as a whole (SSP Sections 2-4).  The Science Committee is currently soliciting comments and feedback on these sections and as part of this process the Science Committee asks one thing of you:

Read the Strategic Science Plan and submit comments to either Emma <> or Basil Gomez <> before 27 February, 2015.

Download a copy of the Strategic Science Plan.

Recap of how you can help:
  1. Download and read the SSP
  2. Are your science goals adequately covered? Submit comments to Emma <> or Basil Gomez <> before 27 February, 2015.

An Overview Presentation on SEN

Last week, SEN gave a presentation at the EarthCube C4P (Collaboration and Cyberinfrastructure for Paleogeoscience) Webinar Series. The webinar series this spring focuses on "Synthesizing Cyberinfrastructure Efforts of C4P and the EarthCube Community." Throughout the spring, there will be talks from different EarthCube projects and C4P-related cyberinfrastructure efforts.

Here's our talk, given by Leslie Hsu of Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory but made possible by all of the members of SEN. (Quick summary: 1. motivation, 2. overview of activities, 3. collaborations with other EarthCube projects GeoSoft, CINERGI, and Geosemantic Framework for Integrating Long-Tail Data and Models.)
