A contingent of several NASA Goddard Earth Science Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) staff members will be attending the Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Summer 2011 Meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico, from July 12 to July 15.
The GES DISC will be represented at the meeting by GES DISC Head Steve Kempler, Greg Leptoukh, Chris Lynnes, Richard Strub, Bill Teng, and Wenli Yang.
Lynnes is taking a leading role at this ESIP meeting; in addition to presenting a talk entitled "Ambiguity of Data Quality for Remote Sensing Data" on the first day of the meeting, he will be providing a poster about the Data Quality Screening Service, and moderating two breakout sessions for the ESIP Discovery Cluster and the Earth Science Collaboratory Cluster.
Later in the same session where Lynnes will be speaking, Wenli Yang will present "The OGC Web Coverage Service Specification and its Application in the NASA Data Environment".
Greg Leptoukh will provide the introduction to the IQ Cluster, which is addressing "different [data] quality needs as presented by different science domain communities".
Session details for the ESIP Summer 2011 meeting are provided here. On Friday afternoon, a field trip to the Valles Caldera near Los Alamos is planned.
