Hi All -

This email is a belated notice that Bruce Barkstrom passed away on July 1,
2018. As many of you know, he was a significant contributor to Earth
sciences at NASA, NOAA and in ESIP. He will always be remembered as an
instrumental figure and visionary in the early days of Federal Earth
science data systems as he carefully considered users and user needs. Bruce
continued to contribute actively to the ESIP Data Stewardship and broader
Earth science data community after he retired. Bruce was a good friend to
many of us and will be missed.

If you knew Bruce or of his work and would like to leave a condolence,
the family
wishes that notes are left on the family's condolence space online:
