I'm trying to get up to speed with recent goings on in EarthCube and have been looking through what's happening with this concept award. In the USGS, I'm part of a group that is dealing with a number of long-tail data kinds of issues, working to bring to light a bunch of data that often gets lost in the perpetual government warehouse (think Raiders of the Lost Ark). I came visiting to post a (hopefully not spam) notice in several groups about a recent challenge.gov opportunity our group in USGS…See More

The U.S. Geological Survey Core Science Analytics and Synthesis Program has a dual role in the USGS dealing with the biogeographic layer of the Critical Zone and our major biodiversity data assets along with a developing capability in informatics and cyberinfrastructure. We just released a challenge.gov concept called "Applifying USGS Data" that may be of interest to this EarthCube community. The challenge calls for innovative ideas on leveraging the various web services provided by some of our…See More
Thank you for the response. You filled in a valuable missing link for me that I had heretofore missed somehow - the fact that you are thinking about both workshop proposals and concept awards. The diagram you had in the slides from the…"
"There is an interesting mix of topics lumped together here under "Governance." I'm not sure on the reasoning behind this, and I unfortunately missed the webex presentation the other day where that might have been discussed. It…"

“Governance refers to the processes, structure and organizational elements that determine, within an organization or system of organizations, how power is exercised, how stakeholders have their say, how decisions are made, and how decision makers are held accountable.” In spring 2012, NSF merged several governance-related Expressions of Interest into a single Governance Working Group, led by the Governance Steering Committee (…See More
Data discovery, access, and mining are essential functions associated with any cyberinfrastructure that supports data-enabled science. The EarthCube Data Discovery, Access, and Mining (aka DDMA) cluster of activities will assess the state of the art in each of these areas and provide a roadmap for the future. Broad community engagement is a key aspect of this activity. Correspondingly, we will discuss strategies for embracing the needs of the so-called long tail of geoscientists in the areas of…See More
Which would you say is your main area of expertise?
Users who have a strong grasp of both the geoscience community's scientific and cyberinfrastructure needs, Experts in knowledge management/information systems who can contribute to discussions related to turning user and data requirements into cyberinfrastructure functionality
