Invitation to the official launch of the new Earthdata User Forum
18 February 2020

You are invited to the official launch of the new Earthdata User Forum on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at 11AM for a demonstration. The Webex will include an overview of the site, as well as a demonstration of data users' and NASA Distributed Active Archive Centers subject matter experts' interaction about general questions, research needs and data applications.

The Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC), in cooperation with ESDIS, has created a new ESDIS Cross-DAAC Forum for Earth Science knowledge discovery and distribution. Currently, ASDC, Crustal Dynamics Data Information System (CDDIS), Goddard Earth Science Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC), Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC), and Land Processes DAAC (LP DAAC) are participants. The Earthdata User Forum offers Earth Science explorers the opportunity to search answers to Earth Science questions across NASA DAACs and Missions.
