Dear Colleagues,

My sincere apologies that you may have received this message through
several channels.

The 2019 Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union
<https://www2.agu.org/fall-meeting> will be held on 9–13 December 2019 in
San Francisco, CA. The World Data System is co-convening the following
session, and we would like to encourage your *abstract submission
<https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/82801>* by the deadline
of *Wednesday, 31 July*.

*Session ID:* 82801
*Session Title:* IN003. Advancing Capabilities to Enable Current and Future
Use of Earth and Space Science Data
*Section/Focus Group:* Earth and Space Science Informatics

*Session Description:*
Data centers, repositories, archives, and other data facilities and systems
strive to offer trustworthy capabilities and services that enable sharing
and long-term use of open data. A variety of such facilities and systems
have been operating around the world, serving user communities for many
scientific disciplines. Upon acquiring data from various missions, projects
and/or studies and in diverse formats, data product and service developers
assess, manage, curate, process, integrate, package, organize, describe,
and disseminate data, to facilitate widespread and continuing data sharing
and use. Providing capabilities for sharing open data fosters new studies
and new data products and services. The TRUST Principles (Transparency,
Responsibility, User Community, Sustainability, and Technology),
certification, and policy development can contribute to system improvements
as well as increased user expectations. Presentations describe approaches
and opportunities to improve systems, capabilities, and services for
enabling current and future uses of Earth and space science data products
and services.

*Primary Convener:*

   - Robert Downs, Columbia University of New York, Center for
   International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN), Palisades NY
