Who We Are

Since our beginning in 2011, EarthCube has attracted an evolving, dynamic virtual community of more than 2,500 contributors, including earth, ocean, polar, planetary, atmospheric, geospace, computer and social scientists, educators, and data and information professionals. We actively seek to engage individual researchers, students, and partners from across the geosciences and cyberinfrastructure sectors. 

EarthCube community members work together to:

  • influence how data will be collected accessed, analyzed, visualized, shared and archived;
  • participate in interdisciplinary and collaborative research;
  • contribute to the transformation of geoscience research through the emerging practices of digital scholarship, data and software stewardship, and open science.

Collectively, these activities are aimed to foster a better understanding of our complex and changing planet and enable the geosciences community to understand and predict responses of the Earth as a system, from the space-atmosphere boundary to the inner core of our planet.

What We do

EarthCube is creating a dynamic, common cyberinfrastructure and data tools to collect, access, analyze, share, and visualize all forms of data and resources, using advanced technological and computational capabilities.

Whether you are a geoscientist, data scientist, or student of either of these, EarthCube needs and welcomes you!
