The USGS Community for Data Integration (CDI) and the Pacific Northwest Aquatic Monitoring Partnership (PNAMP) are partnering to present a monthly webinar series on data management. We invite you to join us on the 3rd Wed. of every month at 2pm EST

The objective of this collaborative series is to bring together a broad group of participants to share knowledge and facilitate discussion. We've based the order of presentations on the USGS Science Data Lifecycle, and over the year we will cover the entire process, from data management planning to sharing and publishing. 

Here are the topics and speakers:

Information about PNAMP and CDI:

The Pacific Northwest Aquatic Monitoring Partnership (PNAMP) provides a forum to sustain collaboration among aquatic monitoring practitioners in the Pacific Northwest. The forum consists of federal, tribal and state partners, other interested participants and a coordinating staff. Our goal is to facilitate collaboration around aquatic monitoring topics of interest, promote best practices and encourage coordination and integration of monitoring activities. Activities are conducted by participant working groups and teams as endorsed by the partner-based steering committee. 
The USGS Community for Data Integration (CDI) is a dynamic aggregation of multiple communities of practice, focusing on the advancement of data and information management in the earth sciences. CDI works to promote data integration capabilities across the USGS and collaborating organizations. Through partnerships and working groups, CDI leads the development of data management tools and practices, cyber infrastructure, collaboration tools and training opportunities. This webinar series is coordinated in part by CDI's Data Management Working Group.
