Hi ESIP Colleagues,

Please consider submitting a paper to session 1880 on Airborne Data Management at the 2014 Fall American Geophysical Union meeting on 15-19 December 2014 in San Francisco, California.


As you know, aircraft based observations are a major component of the NASA Earth Observation System.  There has been an increased use and demand for airborne observational data.  Please consider joining us to have a meaningful discussion in San Francisco about tools, experiences and lessons learned from your dealing with airborne data sets.  Abstracts are due August 6.

Session ID: 1880

Session Title:  Promoting the Science Value of Airborne Observational Data through Increasing Awareness of Airborne Data Management Challenges, Capabilities and the Gaps, and through Sharing Experiences and Lessons learned

Session Description: Airborne in-situ and remote sensing measurements are essential elements of the integrated Earth Observing System (EOS) and provide key insights into Earth processes.  Over the past two decades, aircraft data have grown remarkably in both volume and measurement types. While often used in validation and assessment of models and satellite measurements, airborne data are under-utilized largely due to challenges unique to airborne data management. These include data hosting at various locations and in different formats as well as limited spatiotemporal coverage that affect how data centers organize and distribute the data.  Recently, data centers, airborne science teams, and user communities have made significant progress to enhance the accessibility and usability of the airborne science data. This session seeks papers that describe airborne data management challenges; as well as progress made, experiences, ideas and lessons learned in enhancing airborne data systems.
