their views*”, will showcase some current DataONE members and provide an
overview on the DataONE federated network. The webinar will be a panel
presentation by DataONE team members (*Dave Vieglais, Monica Ihli, Amy
Forrester*) and repository leads (*Mark Sevilla - EDI, James Duncan - FEMC,

DataONE Member Nodes are the key to getting research data available through
DataONE and are the site where data is gathered, managed, and stored. As
part of the DataONE federation, Member Nodes expose all or portions of
their data products by implementing a common set of service interfaces.
Member Nodes are typically existing data repositories within the earth
science domain and often already fill an important role in their respective
communities supporting data management, curation, discovery, and access
functions. These preservation-oriented repositories invest time and
resources to join DataONE’s persistent, reliable, and sustainable
cyberinfrastructure with the common goal to unite environment-based
research through its distributed architecture. The benefits of which can
lead to better visibility and dissemination of their data, long-term data
management, and broader community engagement.

Cooperative, where he strives to improve access to information and
monitoring of forested ecosystems in the northeast. He supports Cooperators
by making long-term monitoring data on the region’s forested ecosystems
more accessible, providing needed aggregation and syntheses of disparate
data into products that are more useful for seeing and responding to
change, and building new regional networks for greater collaboration in
monitoring. He also supports interdisciplinary teams in UVM's Rubenstein
School of Environment and Natural Resources with spatiotemporal analysis
and integration of social and ecological data, and serves on his towns tree
board. He previously worked to increase transparency in the oil, gas and
mining sectors by giving decision makers and citizens tools to map and
interact with data, including in Mongolia and Ghana.
