Article1Call for Abstracts: AGU Track Data Session

On behalf of the organizers, we welcome your submissions to a session looking at how we manage, use, and visualize "track" data, such as that collected by sensors on airplanes, drones, ships, and vehicles. This session will take place at t he  AGU 2019 Fall Meeting (Dec. 9-13 in San Francisco, CA).
Session Description: Many different types of projects collect track data, which describes the time and location where Earth science measurements were made along the path traversed by a ship, airplane, drone, vehicle, or hiker. The users and managers of this data tend to be associated with particular domains (such as ocean sciences, terrestrial ecology, or atmospheric sciences), which can limit the exchange of ideas and methods for working with this type of data.  This session is an opportunity to explore and share approaches for storing, discovering, visualizing, and analyzing track data, in an effort to identify recommended practices and opportunities for further collaboration across science domains.

Primary Convener:  Bruce Wilson; ORNL Distributed Active Archive Center, Oak Ridge National Laboratory,  Conveners:  Heather Holbach; Atlantic Oceanographic and Meterological Laboratory, Hurricane Research Division, NOAA;  Deborah Smith; NASA IMPACT Project;  Shawn Smith; Marine Data Center, Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies, Florida State University 

Abstract Submission Deadline: 31 July, 11:59 P.M. ET

Please share with any interested colleagues.
