NSF Funds $8.4 Million in Grants for EarthCube Science-Enabling Data Capabilities Program

To meet current and future needs of the geosciences research and education community, the National Science Foundation (NSF) recently awarded fifteen grants that focus on ten EarthCube interconnected projects. The new grants engage an array of geosciences, cyberinfrastructure, computer science, and associated communities.

The new awards include the following:
