Thanks to Ouida Meier, Megan Carter, Steve Diggs, Elisha Wood-Charlson, Bonnie Hurwitz, and Francoise and Jay Pearlman who helped greet hundreds of visitors to EarthCube's booth and introduce them to what EarthCube is and where it's headed.
More than 70 people eager to use and expand existing cyber-resources like BCO-DMO and iMicrobe in their geobiology and ocean 'omics research attended the ECOGEO Environmental 'Omics Town Hall. The speakers' panel included Elisha Wood-Charlson (ECOGEO RCN), Danie Kinkade (BCO-DMO), Bonnie Hurwitz (iMicrobe), and Mak Saito (WHOI).
