Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract for AGU session #2497, "Data-Intensive Approaches for Collaborative Socio-Environmental Research to Address Climate Challenges".  Abstracts are due 2014 Aug 6.

Title:  Data-Intensive Approaches for Collaborative Socio-Environmental Research to Address Climate Challenges
Session ID#: 2497
Session Description:
The dynamics of coupled natural-human systems cannot be understood in the absence of data about the human dimension.  The informatics community is making headways into measurement and technical interoperability between observing systems, and the scientific community has been making steady progress in developing coupled models that span physical and biological processes.  However, integrating socioeconomic data in a scalable, quantifiable, replicable, and repeatable manner remains a challenge.

Dealing with this challenge has never been more important given the critical role environmental intelligence plays in building climate-ready and climate-resilient communities.   This session highlights challenges researchers face when integrating socioeconomic data with environmental data, especially projects that have successfully navigated the complex pathways between observational data and climate-change mitigation/adaptation strategies.  A special emphasis will be placed on tools and data-intensive approaches that enable collaborative, interdisciplinary ways of discovering, accessing, and integrating socioeconomic and environmental data.
