Member Highlight: AGU

Reason AGU participates in ESIP: ESIP is a valuable Earth and space science community. Through the ESIP network of experts, data- and informatics-related problems affecting the entire community are addressed head-on. AGU recognizes the importance of this work and values the feedback of ESIP members to ensure that the programs it supports and develops meet the specialized needs of organizations and individuals in the geoscience community.

Member Highlight: CUAHSI

Why CUAHSI participates in ESIP: CUAHSI joined ESIP to cooperate with other data facilities to collaborate on technical implementations of data sharing solutions.
