A Community Dedicated to the Advancement of Geoscience Research

For nearly a decade, the EarthCube community has been transforming the conduct of geosciences research by developing and maintaining a well-connected and facile environment that improves access, sharing, visualization, and analysis of data and related resources. While sharable tools, methods, and cyberinfrastructure have been critical achievements for EarthCube, we find that our dedicated community is what makes our program successful.

​The EarthCube community works together to:

  • influence how data will be collected accessed, analyzed, visualized, shared and archived;

  • participate in interdisciplinary and collaborative research; and

  • 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.

EarthCube strives to enable the geosciences community to predict responses of the Earth as a system - from the space-atmosphere boundary to the inner core of our planet.
A partnership between the NSF Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) and the NSF Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC) in the Directorate for Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE), EarthCube consists of interconnected projects  and activities that engage the geosciences, cyberinfrastructure, computer science, and associated communities.
