(i) improve the openness and scientific value of the existing network of cyberinfrastructure resources in the geosciences and related fields, such as data repositories, open-source software communities, and shared computing resources (e.g., high-performance and cloud computing), including via alignment on and adoption of common data and metadata standards that advance access and interoperability;
(ii) democratize access to cyberinfrastructure capabilities that enable innovative geosciences research and education, including by advancing cloud-based approaches and workflows;
(iii) strengthen the capacity of current and future geoscientists to access, utilize, and collaborate within the growing ecosystem of open science resources; and
(iv) contribute to advancing open science principles within the geosciences, including (but not limited to) the FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable), the CARE Principles for Indigenous Data Governance (Collective Benefit, Authority to Control, Responsibility, and Ethics), and the TRUST Principles for digital repositories (Transparency, Responsibility, User focus, Sustainability, and Technology), as well as Reproducibility and Replicability.
Hopefully this is of interest to some members of the community.
Thanks for sharing Daniel. I’m interested in this funding opportutnity looking for potential colloborators.
At 2i2c, we’ve been deploying a number of Pangeo-like JupyterHub instances and I think a good business case could be made for the NSF to fund cloud-based platform that would enable many geoscience related research groups (each of which might be too small on their own to fund a cloud-based platform) continued access to a shared hub.
Related, I like to see more documented case studies of how geosciences are actually being done with the approaches that have been innovated by the Pangeo community. I think these could serve as useful training and resources for geoscientists.
I fully support @jmunroe’s intention to go after this proposal! I think the Pangeo community would be an excellent fit for the solicitation, and that James will be a great lead.
Many of the the people who led the first wave of Pangeo proposals (myself, @jhamman, @kmpaul) have moved on to new roles where it doesn’t make sense to be going after grants. We are very excited to keep collaborating, but a new cohort of PIs will have to step up if we want to keep Pangeo funded in the same way it has been. to James for his leadership!
He will need more collaborating institutions to make this a success, and I know there are other folks out there eager to take on more leadership roles in the project!
Briefly I just want to mention that I’m looking carefully at this solicitation too. It looks like a great fit for pushing forward with the educational efforts of Project Pythia, among other things. I’ve spoken briefly offline with @clyne about this. I think there’s scope for a multi-institution collaboration on Pythia / Pangeo related work under “Track 2”. I may attempt to organize a brainstorming session for next week among interested Pangeans @jmunroe@jbednar
We are also very interested in this particular from point of view to expand the use of open environmental data from NOAA and other places and engage with communities beyond universities. So would love to join the conversation to see if we can contribute.
On the education side of things, UW eScience might be a good collaborator as the parent org of a lot of the HackWeek programs. I know for OceanHackWeek, we’re already working with 2i2c for our hub, and I believe a bunch of the other HackWeeks are too.
It probably wouldn’t fit with an education proposal, but I think it could fund some work on building out an Xpublish ecosystem (which I should probably post about here at some point) under ‘cyberinfrastructure with common standards’.
With ESIP going on next week, I won’t have a lot of availability but the week after look fairly open. Please add in your own availability here and we’ll find a time for a bit of a kick-off to this grant planning opportunity: PANGEO GEO OSE - When2meet
Hi @brian-rose , LinkedEarth is planning on participating as well in the paleo space.
Our growing collection of cloud-based educational tutorials leveraging the Python open science ecosystem (some using pangeo tools, particularly pangeo-forge and Xarray) may be of use to you if you need to demonstrate paleo use cases or simply incorporate some of our tutorials into Project Pythia.
Thanks for the replies everyone. From the feedback received, let’s go with Wednesday, February 1 at 1:00 pm ET. Feel free to invite anyone who might be interested to have a discussion on a path forward on this NSF GEO OSE grant for Pangeo.
