Summary

The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Earth Cube Initiative (http://www.nsf.gov/geo/earthcube/) encompasses “transformative concepts and approaches to create integrated data management infrastructures across the Geosciences.” The goal of these Coral Reef Systems Science end user workshops is to solicit input from end users and data generators on the role that cyber-enabled data tools can play in addressing the grand scientific challenges in the field, and in enhancing the value, scope and impact of coral reef systems science.

 

The Coral Reef Research Community focuses on a critically important and threatened ecosystem and is extremely diverse from a disciplinary perspective, crossing the boundaries of biological, physical and chemical oceanography, climate science, remote sensing, modeling and engineering. Coral reef research data exemplifies many of the challenges that the Earth Cube Initiative is addressing. Reflecting Earth Cube programmatic guidelines, participants have been selected to represent a broad geographic range of US academic coral reef community members, including women and minorities, and as many early to mid career coral biologists as possible. Between the two workshops 50-60 participants are expected to attend either in person or virtually.
