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!

Sign up for the EarthCube Monthly Newsletter to find out about:
- Upcoming Events (conferences, webinars, virtual team meetings);
- News from over 50 funded projects;
- Funding opportunities such as our Distinguished Lecturer Program and Early Career Travel Grant.
Tune in to our monthly EarthCube Webinar Series: Doing GeoScience with EarthCube Tools and learn how EarthCube can benefit your research.
Explore and connect with over 50 projects focused on:
- Building Blocks (BBs) to develop novel infrastructure capabilities and demonstrate their value in a science context;
- Research Coordination Networks (RCNs) to advance community building and to prioritize specific software development projects;
- Conceptual Design (CDs) to develop broad architecture design and explore integrative systems;
- Integrative Activities (IAs) to improve access to the products of geoscience research.
