The 2019 AGU Fall Meeting abstract submission deadline is one week from
today (7/31)! To avoid an overload of individual messages to the ESIP-All
Mailing List, we have compiled the following list of sessions that ESIP
Community Members suggest you consider submitting to. Click links below to
see full session abstracts and conveners.

   - ED022 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/77196>* - *Dirty
   Stories of Data Rescue: Sharing Successes and Learning Opportunities to
   Improve Workflows*; How often have we heard a story about old research
   notes, found by chance, that made a study possible, or changed the course
   of a project? How often have we heard someone lament the passing of a
   colleague and the loss of their records, or the discovery of a trove of old
   magnetic tapes or digital files? What other close calls of data loss have
   been averted by the efforts of data rescuers and conservators? By
   encouraging scientists to share their stories, we can create deeper
   engagement with data rescue and conservation efforts. Storytellers in this
   session will present their efforts as a narrative, and participants can
   then engage with the storytellers at their eLightning posters to encourage
   discovery of additional data rescue and conservation pathways.
   - ED023 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/80339>* - *Earth
   Data Science Education: Training Earth Scientists for Interdisciplinary
   Work on New and Emerging Approaches*; this session will focus on
   pedagogy and teaching that incorporate data science methods in Earth
   Science curricula. Potential topics include data wrangling, data
   integration and assimilation, machine learning, Semantic Web, augmented
   reality, visual analytics, or any other data-driven problem-solving method.
   - EP002 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/83210>
- *Advances
   in uncrewed aerial vehicle (UAV) use for Earth and planetary
observation;* this
   session will focus on new methodologies enabled by uncrewed (or unmanned)
   aerial vehicles in multiple domains, and new platforms, sensors,
   operational approaches, and data-analysis techniques that drive these
   approaches. We especially encourage submissions describing new tooling and
   workflows to manage UAV mission planning and data analysis.
   - H029 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/76602> -
   Intelligence and Remote Sensing Enabling The Next Generation of Global
   Applications for Sustainable Development*; As we partake in this
   fast-paced golden age for earth observations and AI, we have to be mindful
   in realizing the potential of these innovative technologies where it
   matters the most: improving the wellbeing of humanity and planet Earth.
   This session solicits presentations 1) showcasing promising use-cases of AI
   and EO in sustainable development, 2) addressing the main technological
   challenges left to solve, and 3) exploring the next generation of
   applications in this domain.
   - IN003 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/82801>
- *Advancing
   Capabilities to Enable Current and Future Use of Earth and Space Science
   Data*; Data centers, repositories, archives, and other data facilities
   and systems strive to offer trustworthy capabilities and services that
   enable sharing and long-term use of open data. Upon acquiring data from
   various missions, projects and/or studies and in diverse formats, data
   product and service developers assess, manage, curate, process, integrate,
   package, organize, describe, and disseminate data, to facilitate widespread
   and continuing data sharing and use. Providing capabilities for sharing
   open data fosters new studies and new data products and services. The TRUST
   Principles (Transparency, Responsibility, User Community, Sustainability,
   and Technology), certification, and policy development can contribute to
   system improvements as well as increased user expectations. Presentations
   describe approaches and opportunities to improve systems, capabilities, and
   services for enabling current and future uses of Earth and space science
   data products and services.
   - IN006 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/80361>
- *Scalable
   Cloud Optimized Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) for Earth Science Big
   Data and Analytics*; this session will focus on Earth observations that
   are service oriented and distributed via geographic information systems
   (GIS) in the cloud, especially as coupled with 3D/4D visualization/analysis
   and machine/deep learning.
   - IN007 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/80511>
- *Airborne
   Data are Unique: Methods and Ideas for Improving Policies, Metadata
   Standards, Data Storage, Discovery, and Use*; Users and data producers
   often find the rules don't easily apply when working with airborne data.
   The problems span all areas of data handling - from measurement to data
   production, archival, data product distribution and discovery, and user
   support. The unique characteristics and complexity of airborne data make it
   difficult to use many of the formats, tools, and services that were
   designed primarily for satellite data. This session aims to highlight
   airborne data issues of concern and examine various solutions, either
   existing or under development. The intent is to bring together the airborne
   data community to encourage cooperation and support as we seek a path
   forward towards a more unified and improved airborne data handling process.
   - IN010 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/81359>
- *Assessment
   and developments in the structured metadata developer tool chain for
   Schema.org and associated extensions*; This session will look at: the
   range of tools needed to increase the simplicity, efficiency and
   connectivity of data provider and research workflows; advances in Linked
   Data and vocabularies, including versioning; and community recommendations
   on or extensions to Schema.org.
   - IN017 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/81049>
- *Communities,
   Tools and Policies that Enable Integration of Earth, Space and
   Environmental Science Data and Cyberinfrastructures;* In recent years
   there has been rapid growth in online datasets, vocabularies, tools and
   compute resources for Earth, space and environmental science researchers.
   Most are coordinated by separate communities and range from major
   international/national initiatives down to notable efforts by much smaller
   communities. There are social, scientific and technological challenges that
   each is trying to solve in isolation, but there are sufficient differences
   that make it hard to leverage common developments across them. The time is
   ripe to synchronize efforts and create globally connected networks of
   Earth, space and environmental Science data, software, compute resources
   and researchers. Presentations are solicited ranging from those building
   community specific systems to those trying to resolve the challenges of
   internationally linking multiple communities to create globally networked
   environments that share common solutions for more efficient and effective
   use of limited funding.
      *IN019 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/78783>*
- *Data
   and Information Services for Interdisciplinary Research and Applications in
   Earth Science;* this session seeks presentations to describe current
   Earth science data and information service activities for interdisciplinary
   research and applications, including tools or data services, existing or in
   development. Presentations addressing specific needs and challenges of
   handling big data with machine-learning or natural language processing,
   including access to findable and relevant data for training purposes and
   service development, are highly encouraged.
   - IN020 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/81984> - *Data
   Integration: Enabling the Acceleration of Science Through Connectivity,
   Collaboration, and Convergent Science*; this session explores the
   challenges and successes repository managers and communities have in
   providing support and services to researchers interested in accessing and
   using data from multiple sources and scientific domains with unfamiliar
   formats, and unknown quality and uncertainty. We seek methods for
   identifying and communicating best practices and challenges in this diverse
   data environment.
   - IN026 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/72626>
- *Environmental
   Sensor Networks;* Climate study related experiments and observational
   stations are getting bigger and number of sensors and instruments involved
   is growing very fast. Experiments like SPRUCE, NGEE-Arctic, NEON have to
   deal with hundreds of sensors and instruments. The most effective way to
   manage such large installations is to incorporate all equipment into a
   network. At this session we would like people to share their experience in
   establishing, maintaining, and managing a fixed environmental sensor
   networks on or near surface measurements (will not include remotely sensed
   data - satellite imagery, aerial photography, etc.). This session is open
   for all works about an existing system, planning a completely new network,
   upgrading an existing system, improving streaming data management, and
   archiving data.

   Data Uncertainty Information FAIR: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and
   Reusable*; this session seeks to discover solutions (from conceptual
   prototype to operational) that intend to make uncertainty information for
   all varieties of Earth science data FAIR and targets open-source
   solutions of varying types, e.g., web tools/services, documented
   practices/policies, metadata standards, data recipes, software packages,
   community repositories/hubs, cloud-based analytics, etc.
   - IN038 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/79577> - *Near
   Real-Time/Low Latency Data for Earth Science and Space Weather
   Applications;* this session seeks contributions that demonstrate the
   benefit of near real time/low latency scientific or social media data,
   discuss innovative real time analysis approaches including machine learning
   and big data strategies, decrease data delivery latency, or identify gaps
   in current capabilities.
   - IN043 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/82482>
- *Standards
   for the Benefit of Science and Society*; Standards can help to ensure
   the F.A.I.R.ness of data, reduce the barriers to adoption of new
   technologies within local and regional cultures, and help close the digital
   divide between less economically developed countries and advanced
   societies. But the development de jure standards takes time and effort, and
   adoption of the end product is not guaranteed. This session consists of
   presentations highlighting the practical aspects, including sociological
   factors, involved in development and adoption of standards and best
   practices. Presentations describing specific use cases and outcomes
   involving standardization efforts are also being solicited.
   - IN047 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/76137> - *Tracks
   across the Ocean, Sky, and Land*; Many different types of projects
   collect track data, which describes the time and location where Earth
   science measurements were made along the path traversed by a ship,
   airplane, drone, vehicle, or hiker. This session is an opportunity to
   explore and share approaches for storing, discovering, visualizing, and
   analyzing track data, in an effort to identify recommended practices and
   opportunities for further collaboration across science domains.
   - IN048 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/77565>
- *Transforming
   Earth and Planetary Science with Mixed Reality and Other Innovative

   Outreach to Advance Awareness and Use of Earth Science in Communities
   Worldwide;* Creative storytelling helps showcase the many ways that
   Earth science provides societal benefits and improves decision making in
   myriad sectors and communities. Multimedia-rich stories, interactive
   websites, social media and media outreach deliver tailored stories that
   make Earth observations and data relatable to new audiences, and to
   potentially inspire new users. This session explores creative approaches
   that make clear the value and relevance of Earth observations to specific
   geographic locations or communities of interest through a range of
   channels, engaging communications techniques, and content. This session
   invites papers that address storytelling and content development that
   tailors or translates Earth science concepts, systems, and projects to
   communities or particular audiences.

- *Profiles
   in Science: Using Relatable Stories and Personal Narratives to Spark
   Scientific Intrigue;* From a young age, stories are how we understand
   new concepts and navigate the world around us. In particular, personal
   narratives help connect audiences to the story of science and its impact on
   the economy, society, and our health. Stories that blend the human
   experience with technical explanations told across written, oral, and
   visual platforms spark interest and emotion among global audiences. They
   are relatable and memorable. This session provides both a range of
   approaches for crafting personal narratives in scientific pursuits and a
   forum for attendees to present or appreciate such blended stories. The
   session invites papers that present tools, models, and techniques on this
   practice as well as instances of personal profiles with lessons for
   composing and delivering them.
   - G012 <https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/74353> - *Plate
   Motion, Continental Deformation, and Interseismic Strain Accumulation;* This
   session seeks studies examining the take up of plate motion in deforming
   zones and the buildup and release of elastic strain along major faults and
   in subduction zones using space geodetic measurements, geologic
   observations, and geophysical data such as seismicity, marine magnetic
   anomalies, and transform fault azimuths.
