Greetings! The 2021 ESIP Winter Meeting is around the virtual corner. Dave
and I met to formulate a draft session, focused on the extraordinary
wildfire disasters on the west coast. I submitted a draft session proposal
and Dave is reaching out to a list of potential speakers. There?s plenty of
time for comments, edits and suggestions for speakers. January 26-28 is
going to be busy in the virtual word as the All Hazards Consortium is
hosting the 2021 Resilience Summit at the same time. Fortunately the
virtual world is very flexible and you can be in 2 places at the same time!

This week we will go over the plans for our proposed session, which is
copied below. The winter meeting session is intended to kick of more
detailed follow on sessions over the winter months, continuing to provide
feedback to agencies and private sector data providers on data usability.
Hope you can join us.

Karen and Dave

2021 ESIP Winter Meeting Session: TBD (January 26 - 28, 2021)

California experienced its largest wildfire season on record with a single
wildfire burning more than 1 million acres. Data has been crucial to inform
decision makers and innovation is being applied. This session will dive
into the public-private benefits of putting trusted data to work as we tie
into the ESIP theme of ?Leading Innovation in Earth Science Frontiers?. The
California Wildfires of 2020 demonstrated that disasters can be on-going
and multi-dimensional with COVID-19, evacuations, and destroyed towns. We
will discuss key trusted data needs and identify additional opportunities
for data applications in support of life saving operations. How can
coordination and data sharing accelerate public-private situational
awareness and decision making? Are there steps that agencies could take to
successfully share their data with decision makers and the public?

Possible Speakers:

Ted Kaouk, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Chief Data Officer, has
been selected chair of the federal Chief Data Officers (CDO) Council.
Isaac Cabrera, CIO State of California
Dr. Ravan Ahmadov, NOAA ESRL HRRR Smoke Model Scientist (Operational by
Dr. Dennis Staley, USGS Hazards Program, Research Physical Scientist
Sam Batzli, Univ of Wisconsin-CIMSS, GOES-POES Satellite derived Burn Scars
Kathryn Rowden, NWS Western Region Wildfire Program Manager
