Dear ESIP Information Quality Cluster Chairs and Members,

During the ESIP Earth Science Data Analytics (ESDA) Cluster telecon, 
today, Sean Barberie, the student fellow for the ESIP Disasters Cluster, 
mentioned that the Disasters Cluster is exploring the concept of 
trustworthiness of data and that the Disasters Cluster is looking for 
another ESIP Cluster to collaborate with on this issue. Steve Kempler, 
the Chair of the ESDA, suggested that the ESIP Information Quality (IQ) 
Cluster might be the appropriate cluster to work with on the issue of 
data trustworthiness. I agree and volunteered to initiate the discussion 
of data trustworthiness with the IQ cluster and am also copying both 
Sean Barberie and Steve Kempler on this message.
