Dear Friends and Colleagues,

By now you have probably received a dozen or more informational announcements for AGU sessions.  This email is another similar announcement but this topic has widespread interest and is expected to be very popular.  Thus, we are pleased to announce Session IN11 on Current Capabilities and Future Needs of Near Real-Time Data at the 2011 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting on 5-9 December 2011 in San Francisco, California.

Note: this was the most popular Earth Science Informatics (IN) session in 2010 and we anticipate it be just as popular this year.  This session is co-sponsored by Atmospheric Sciences (A), Biogeosciences (B), Cryosphere (C), Natural Hazards (NH), Ocean Sciences (OS), Volcanology, Geochemistry, and Petrology (V).  We expect considerable and diverse interest in the topic and we're looking forward to an enjoyable and exciting session.

Please consider submitting an abstract for this Earth and Space Science Informatics session.
AGU Abstract Submission Policies and a link to submit your abstract is available at http://sites.agu.org/fallmeeting/scientific-program/submit-policies/
AGU 2011 general meeting information is available at http://sites.agu.org/fallmeeting/

Please note - the deadline for abstracts is 4 August 2011.  This deadline is about a month earlier than previous years, so please plan accordingly and submit your abstract soon.

Session IN11: Current Capabilities and Future Needs of Near Real-Time Data - Near real-time (NRT) data from satellite and airborne sensors are transforming end-user applications.  Example NRT applications include weather prediction, earthquakes, tsunamis, wildfires, floods, disaster relief, mission management, invasive species monitoring, homeland security, ocean monitoring and space weather. Transitioning from prototype to operational systems is an opportunity to improve future capabilities and expand usage of timely data products and services. This session covers the requirements, scientific development, generation, and application of NRT data for societal benefit and scientific advancement. Contributions are sought that demonstrate the production and application of NRT data and identify gaps in current capabilities.

We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for considering this opportunity to share your research and applications insights.  Please forgive us if you receive multiple postings as we are seeking to distribute this announcement broadly to reach as many disciplines as appropriate
