ESIP Winter Meeting: January 9 - 11, 2018

Welcome to the 2018 Winter Meeting for the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)! The 2018 theme is Realizing the Socioeconomic Value of Data. The theme is based on one of the goals in the 2015 - 2020 ESIP Strategic Plan, which provides a framework for ESIP’s activities over the next three years. 

  • There will be lots going on in Slack during the meeting, find your invite HERE. #winter_mtg

Formulation of a White Paper on Earth Science Data Uncertainty

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Information Quality Cluster (IQC) conducted two sessions at the Summer 2017 ESIP Meeting on the topic of uncertainty as it relates to data and information quality. The first was a plenary session followed by the second, a break-out session. One of the key action items recommended during the break-out session was that a clear understanding of the concept of uncertainty, and its communication to users was essential, and that the IQC should develop a white paper on this topic. The purpose of the session being proposed here is to follow-up on that action with some further discussion leading to the formulation of such a white paper. The session will consist of a brief recapitulation of the outcomes from the summer meeting, presentations on statistical and scientific perspectives on uncertainty, subtopic breakouts and regrouping for formulation of the definition (both mathematical and conceptual) and recommended usages of uncertainty (crossing all Earth Science science disciplines and ranging from quantification to characterization) that will provide the foundation for the white paper and planning further actions. Although the scientific element of the white paper discussion intends to cover interdisciplinary Earth sciences, the primary emphasis will be based on use cases involving data, sensors, and retrieval algorithms from spaceborne Earth observing systems.
