Join NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) team at the NASA exhibit (booth #335) at the 2015 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting December 14 through 18 in San Francisco! This year’s program at the NASA exhibit in the Moscone Convention Center North Hall features presentations, in-booth presentations and talks using the NASA Hyperwall, and mini-tutorials covering a range of science topics, disciplines, and NASA programs.

Representatives from NASA’s EOSDIS will be available to discuss a wide range of Earth science data products, services, and tools. In addition, NASA scientists, engineers, and computer experts will give presentations and demonstrations. As at previous AGU meetings, the NASA Hyperwall will be used for 15-minute presentations along with short, seven-minute “Flash Talks.”

Scheduled Hyperwall presentations include Observing Precipitation from Space, Revisiting the Apollo 17 Landing Site, and Exploring NASA Earth Science Data. Scheduled Hyperwall Flash Talks include Using SMAP Soil Moisture Data to Estimate Rainfall Rates, FINESSE: Walking the Moon... in Idaho, and Postcards from the Edge: How to Find and Use Imagery from Deep Space Missions. For a schedule of presentations and Flash Talks, please see the Schedule of Events at the NASA Booth.

In addition, more than 70 EOSDIS posters and presentations will be featured in the Moscone South Poster Hall and in Moscone West 2020. Scheduled posters and presentations include Introducing Earthdata 3.0, NASA GIBS Use in Live Planetarium Shows, Curating Virtual Data Collections, and Depending on Partnerships to Manage NASA’s Earth Science Data. A tentative schedule of EOSDIS posters and presentations is available through the NASA Earthdata AGU 2015 Fall Meeting Presentations webpage.

NASA’s EOSDIS provides end-to-end capabilities for managing NASA’s Earth science data and is a key core capability within NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems Program. The primary services provided by the EOSDIS are data archive, management, and distribution; information management; product generation; and user support services. NASA Earth observation data are available to users around the world through 12 discipline-specific Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs), which are managed by NASA’s Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project.
