Ecologist looking for Earth science data? Visit the NASA Booth at ESA 2015

The NASA Earth Science Data and Services booth at the ESA Annual Meeting (August 9-14) is your opportunity to discover and explore the wide range of NASA Earth observing data, services and tools.

Esa Meeting Logo JpgNASA’s unique view of Earth from space enables a wide range of ecological investigations of our planet. The NASA Earth Science Data and Services booth at the Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America (ESA) in Baltimore, MD, August 9-14 is your opportunity to discover and explore NASA’s Earth observing efforts and learn about the breadth of data and technologies from NASA that contribute to ecological research.

The theme of this year’s meeting, Ecological Science at the Frontier, celebrates the ESA’s century of service studying the natural world. This theme also applies to NASA’s history of expanding the frontiers of science through the development of innovative missions to explore our planet’s interconnected systems. Throughout the meeting, representatives from NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) will present talks about NASA data and conduct data access and discovery demonstrations in booth #220 in the Baltimore Convention Center.

NASA’s EOSDIS provides end-to-end capabilities for managing NASA’s Earth science data. The primary services provided by the EOSDIS are data archive, management, and distribution; information management; product generation; and user support services. NASA’s DAACs process, archive, and distribute data within specific Earth science disciplines. These satellite, field campaign, and socioeconomic data sets are a valuable resource for ecologists, and can help expand research to larger scales.
