Several of our scientists and environmental data experts will be attending the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Summer Meeting and the co-located DataONE Community Meeting on July 15–19 in Tacoma, Washington. 

The theme of the meeting is "Data to Action: Increasing the Use and Value of Earth Science Data and Information," which fits NCEI’s ongoing focus on expanding awareness and accessibility of its vast collection of environmental data. NCEI scientists and affiliates with the North Carolina Institute for Climate StudiesCooperative Institute for Satellite Earth System Studies (NCICS-CISESS) will be sharing their experiences and fostering discussions by co-chairing sessions, giving talks, presenting posters, and engaging with colleagues from across the Earth science data community to advance environmental data stewardship practices.
