Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The ESIP Lab is accepting small grant proposals (up to $10K) for Earth science informatics projects. Projects run six months (August 1- February 1) and lie in the realm of good ideas ready to be tried out; proposals that address the following areas will be given priority:

  • Proof-of-concept for emerging technologies.
  • Modernization of Earth science workflows using community recommended best practices — the use of open source software and cloud computing are encouraged.
  • Extension of open source software critical to collecting, distributing, or analyzing Earth science data.
  • Development or use of Open Data Cubes, particularly with a focus on delivering data and information to end-user communities.
