Rich Signell - Exploring the USGS Science Data Life Cycle in the Cloud
Abstract: The forthcoming Science for a Risky World: USGS Plan for Risk Research and Applications builds on priorities outlined in Holmes and others (2013), with a specific focus on risk, where hazards and societal values intersect. The Plan aims to initiate a USGS community of practice focused on risk research and applications to improve internal communication, collaboration, and resource sharing across the bureau. Importantly, this Plan provides specific recommendations for addressing mechanisms to ensure that risk research and applications are supported, prioritized, and incorporated in USGS work. These recommendations range from identifying new pathways for connecting and coordinating expertise and resources across the Bureau to articulating new opportunities for training, mentoring, and regularly convening scientists and stakeholders for product development. The recommendations also draw attention to the need for improved capacity and capabilities in areas including technical expertise, product delivery, and expanding information technology capacity. Throughout this Plan, case studies highlight how USGS risk research and applications show meaningful ways to connect with stakeholders, leverage existing investments, overcome challenges, and capitalize on new opportunities. A collection of new project ideas envisions how the goals of this Plan could be embodied in future investments.
Bio: Kris Ludwig is a staff scientist in the USGS Natural Hazards Mission Area and is part of the Department of the Interior Strategic Sciences Group, which supports decision making during environmental crises such as Deepwater Horizon and Hurricane Sandy. Kris contributes to several projects focused on translating hazards science to risk assessments and serves on multiple interagency committees for hazard preparedness and community resilience. She holds a Ph.D. in Oceanography from the University of Washington and a B.S. in Earth Systems from Stanford University.
