About the Topic: NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems (ESDS) Program has evolved over the last two decades, and currently has several core and community components. Core components provide the basic operational capabilities to process, archive, manage and distribute data from NASA missions. Community components provide a path for peer-reviewed research in Earth Science Informatics to feed into the evolution of the core components. The Earth Observing System Data and Information System is a core component consisting of twelve Distributed Active Archive Centers and eight Science Investigator-led Processing Systems spread across the U.S. This presentation covers how ESDS continues to evolve, benefit and contribute to Earth Science Informatics advancement.
