Abstract: Ever have trouble finding data? Understanding how to use it? Have challenges combining it with other data? Then you understand why stewarding NOAA's environmental data to ensure it is findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable is critical to providing the highest value from NOAA's investment in Earth observations. NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Data (NCEI) works with partners across NOAA and beyond to ensure that NOAA's data are broadly available, independently understandable, and reusable for future generations, supporting NOAA's mission of science, stewardship, and service. Join this seminar to learn more about why this work is important and the challenges, how NCEI partners across the organization to meet these goals, and the foundational stewardship services NCEI offers.
Bio(s): Monica Youngman is the Chief of the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) Data Stewardship Division providing archive and access services for NOAA's environmental data. In this role she focuses on making NOAA's data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable by building relationships with stakeholders to understand needs, improving the data archiving and access processes, and expanding use of Cloud technology. Prior to joining NCEI in 2018, Monica worked for NOAA's National Geodetic Survey in a number of positions, most recently leading the multi-million dollar Gravity Program that includes the Gravity for the Redefinition of the American Vertical Datum (GRAV-D) project. She has a Masters of Environmental Management from Duke University as well as bachelors degrees in political science and physics from Iowa State University.
