I just got off a telecon with Maggi Glasscoe since she was unable to make
the last Disaster Lifecycle Cluster telecon last week.  We discussed some
ideas fo the Winter meeting session. I am submitting below some ideas on how
the session could come together in Bethesda:


DRAFT Session Description below:


Possible Title: Inviting providers of trusted science data products for
decision makers. Let's talk Operational Readiness Levels (ORLs)


Approach: The Disaster Lifecycle Cluster has seen great success in its
efforts to put Federated arms around "trusted data for decision makers" as a
way to accelerate situational awareness and decision-making. By identifying
trust levels for data. This session will build upon the Summer meeting and
align perfectly with the overall ESIP theme of: Data to Action: Increasing
the Use and Value of Earth Science Data and Information.


The ESIP Disaster Lifecycle Cluster has evolved into one of the most
operationally active clusters in the Federation with a thirst for applying
datasets to decision-making environments while building trust levels that
manifest themselves as ORLs. Duke Energy, All Hazards Consortium's Sensitive
Information Sharing environment (SISE), DHS and FEMA are all increasing
their interest in ORLs with their sights set on implementing them in the
near future. Data is available everywhere and more of it is on the way.
Trusted data is available some places and can help decision makers such as
utilities make 30-second decisions that can save lives, property and get the
lights back on sooner, saving millions of dollars. 


This session will provide the venue to discuss emerging projects from NASA's
Applied Sciences Division (A.37), Initiatives at JPL and Federal Agency data
portal access that can accelerate decision making today and in the future.
We will also discuss drone data and European satellite data that is
available for access and use when disasters threaten. Come and join us, the
data you have may just save a life.
