Welcome to the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) 2018 Summer Meeting! 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.

The EnviroSensing Cluster is currently focused on workflow improvement for sensor-based science, particularly in the areas of quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) to meet FAIR Data (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusible) objectives. Provenance for sensor data begins at the procurement/deployment phase and ends with some level of quality-controlled output product. Capture of metadata for hardware deployment, field maintenance, and data transmission represents the bulk of QA work, whereas the subsequent evaluation and flagging of observation data represents the QC process. As part of a two-session series, we will have short presentations (5-10min/ea) on case studies of QA Metadata Capture and subsequent Data Quality Control workflows, followed by group discussion of efficacy and directions for improvement. A separate session on standards for sensor QA/QC metadata annotation and related protocols will follow up on these concepts.
