Several staff members from the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) are attending a workshop associated with the National Science Foundation (NSF) EarthCube initiative. The workshop, which is focused on requirements for EarthCube from the atmospheric cloud, aerosol, and composition community and on interactions between the relevant domain and data scientists, is hosted by the Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia (October 21-22, 2013).

The workshop is entitled “NSF EarthCube Domain End-User Workshop: Engaging the Atmospheric Cloud/Aerosol/Composition Community”. The attendees from the GES DISC are Jennifer Wei, Zhong Liu, Wenli Yang, Feng Ding, James Johnson, and Gilberto Vicente.

The full title of the NSF initiative is “EarthCube: Developing a Community-Driven Data and Knowledge Environment for the Geosciences”. NSF states that EarthCube “seeks transformative concepts and approaches to create integrated data management infrastructures across the Geosciences”.
