For more than 100 years AGU has been opening science—opening pathways to discovery, opening greater awareness to address climate change, opening greater collaborations to lead to solutions and opening the fields and professions of science to a whole new age of justice equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging.
This year, as we convene >25,000 attendees from 100+ countries in San Francisco for AGU23, our theme is: Wide. Open. Science. 2023 might be the official year of Open Science but we also see it as an opportunity to affirm AGU’s overarching values and beliefs. It is a message for all of us to carry as we come together to share, inspire, collaborate, engage and most of all rededicate ourselves as a united community grounded in wide open science.
The NCAR Earth Observing Laboratory and the University of Wyoming will be co-hosting a NSF-sponsored, five-day hybrid workshop in Boulder, Colorado from September 18-22, 2023. The workshop will bring together experienced and new users of NSF’s Facilities for Atmospheric Research and Education to network, collaborate, and explore observational needs to advance atmospheric science.
The goals of the workshop are to:
Increase community awareness of the expanded NSF Facilities for Atmospheric Research and Education (FARE) Program, including Lower Atmosphere Observing Facilities (LAOF) and Community Instruments and Facilities (CIF);
Provide guidance to new users in submitting scientific proposals and facility requests that plan to use available FARE assets;
Facilitate discussions related to science drivers, emerging technologies, and community needs in atmospheric research; and
Form and strengthen partnerships and sustained innovative collaboration.
