We would like to draw your attention to the following Earth and Space
Science Informatics session at the *2020 Fall AGU Meeting, *7-11 December
2020 *virtual* conference.

*Session Title*: Near Real-Time/Low Latency Data for Earth Science and
Space Weather Applications

*Section*: Earth and Space Science Informatics

*Session Viewer Link*:

*Conveners*: Michael Goodman/NASA Marshall, Diane Davies/Trigg-Davies
Consulting NASA Goddard, Diego Melgar/U. Oregon, and Rob Redmon/NOAA
National Centers for Environmental Information

*Session Description*: Near real-time/low latency data and new big data
techniques applied to satellite, airborne, marine (including uninhabited
aerial/marine systems-UxS), and surface sensors are transforming existing
end-user applications and spawning new ones. These applications demonstrate
the utility of timely data and advanced analyses in diverse Earth and space
science disciplines including weather prediction, flood and river
forecasting, earthquake hazards and tsunami forecasting, volcanic
eruptions, natural and human-caused hazards, public health, agriculture,
marine, early warning, and space weather applications. In addition to
traditional and emerging computer analyses, the use of apps for smartphones
and tablets presents an opportunity to improve and expand the timely usage
of data products and services. This session seeks contributions that
demonstrate the benefit of near real time/low latency scientific or social
media data, discuss innovative real time analysis approaches including
machine learning and big data strategies, decrease data delivery latency,
or identify gaps in current capabilities.

We held this session last year (2019) and it was a popular session within
the Earth and Space Science Informatics (IN) track and we anticipate it to
be as popular this year.  The session is cross listed in Natural Hazards,
Atmospheric Sciences, SPA-Solar and Heliospheric Physics, and Geodesy,

We encourage you to contribute to our discussion on near real-time and low
latency data for Earth science and space weather applications.

Please note that the *abstract deadline is Wednesday, 29 July 2020* (2359
EDT), so please plan accordingly and submit your abstract soon. The first
author *must* be an AGU member.  To submit an abstract, please follow this

*Index Terms*:

1964    Real-time and responsive information delivery [INFORMATICS]

Visit the 2020 Fall AGU website at:
the most up to date information about the virtual meeting.  Since this
is* primarily
a virtual attendance conference, the registration fee will be about half
the normal rate.*  Authors will be informed in September regarding the date
and format (oral or poster) of their presentation.

We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for considering this
opportunity to share your research and science application insights.  You
may receive multiple postings of this email as we are seeking to distribute
the announcement broadly to reach as many disciplines as appropriate.

Finally, if you have questions about our session, please *do not “reply
all”*, rather send your questions to Michael Goodman, Diane Davies, Rob
Redmon, and/or Diego Melgar at the email addresses immediately below.
