Congressional Webinar: “AES: Data as a National Asset for Decision-Making”

Robust data collections are vital for understanding and managing Earth’s natural resources and hazards:
• Earthquake data can help identify quake-prone areas and inform earthquake preparedness.
• Air quality data can reveal potential health risks and hazards from air pollution.
• Water quality data can capture noteworthy trends and changes in safety and accessibility.

This webinar is based on a Congressional briefing organized by the Advances in Earth Science coalition (22 June 2016). The webinar features experts from industry, academia, and state and federal government agencies, who will discuss how Earth Science data is collected, used, and disseminated. Speakers will address current protocols and future endeavors in data collection.
