Friends and Colleagues: 

Envision long time series of Earth science observations from multiple 
instruments which  command scales from global to local environments.  Now 
imagine that academics, industry and government agencies have lowered the 
most common data access barriers.
What technologies will influence data access in the future?  What scalable 
capabilities are being planned and implemented? What solutions are there 
to the tough problems that still challenge? 
We encourage you to take this opportunity to bring your priorities for 
evolving our next generation data systems by submitting a paper to the 
following session. 

Abstracts for the AGU Fall Meeting (3-7 Dec, SFO) can be submitted until 
August 8th. 
Session IN022: Envisioning Improvements for Earth Science Data Access 
Session Abstract: New Earth observations and data access methods are 
expected to enable and advance research opportunities.  Capabilities are 
being implemented orplanned by institutional centers and facilities that 
hold collections of Earth science data. 
These data systems generally aspire to a set of tenets which include: 
stewardship of data through its lifetime, data and system 
interoperability, rapid data delivery, multiple search and access paths 
through open interfaces, data transparency, client/user access to data set 
experts, and system evolution responsive to changing user needs. 
The session covers topics on expected improvements in Earth science 
information services for data centers.  We also request submissions from 
the data center and data producer communities, which assess their progress 
on the above stated tenets.   Special interest topics include scalable 
systems and projects which guide effective Web services portals for 
complexdata types; user data access methods and tools, interoperability 
among centers including Open Search protocols, use of standards such the 
Open GIS Consortium (OGC) and the Open Network Data Access Protocol 
(OpenDAP), ISO metadata, standard formats such as NetCDF, HDF or Geotiff 
and archive information packaging. 
Please consider submitting an abstract.  We would like to here from you 
about your ideas and plans.  The AGU website has instructions on abstract 
submission at
