For over 20 years, ESIP meetings have brought together the most innovative thinkers and leaders around Earth observation data, thus forming a community dedicated to making Earth observations more discoverable, accessible and useful to researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and the public. The theme of this year’s meeting is Leading Innovation in Earth Science Data Frontiers.

This session is a working session of the Physical Samples Curation Cluster. During this session, we will report on related activities in other ESIP Clusters, updates from the relevant external Sample Communities (iSamples, SESAR, ESS DIVE, RDA, IMLGS, etc.) and continue efforts from the Cluster monthly meetings.

To continue efforts from the monthly meetings, we will have focused discussions on three topics. First, identified at the 2021 ESIP Winter Meeting, the development of recommendations for samples for journals and publishers. Second, we will review the landscape of ongoing efforts related to sample metadata (including top level categorizations, controlled vocabularies, and registration workflows). Finally, we will provide space for discussing leading practices and community questions (e.g. recommendations for identifiers and barcodes to streamline sample analysis and publications workflows).

The Physical Samples Curation Cluster is a forum for the community supporting physical samples in the earth, space, and environmental sciences which includes but is not limited to geological and biological samples. The cluster’s goal is to enhance discoverability, access, and use of sample collections.
