Outreach Tools and Use Case Dissemination

Members: Simon Goring (Lead), Noah McLean, Plato Smith

Major focus/outcomes:

  • GSA Session proposed and accepted to highlight end-user scientists' experiences with EarthCube and how their research benefits from EarthCube's tools and resources
  • AGU Proposal session: to be proposed
  • Early Career Travel Grant to provide funds to early career researchers in the geosciences for participation at meetings, workshops and conferences where EarthCube-related work is to be presented or discussed.


Mapping the Landscape (co-effort with Liaison Team)

Members: Lindsay Powers (Lead), Sarah Ramdeen, Simon Goring, Nina Jackson

Major focus/outcomes:

  • Populate a Mapping the Landscape spreadsheet by domain and org-type
