The “pipeline” of Earth science data to climate resilience and its value for real-world decision making

<p>The ESIP Agriculture and Climate Cluster (ACC) has, over the past several years, been developing a “pipeline” to transform ongoing or recent agriculture / climate-related research and applications into case studies that become part of the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit (CRT; <a href="https://toolkit.climate.gov/">https://toolkit.climate.gov/</a>). These CRT case studies document “how people are building resilience for their businesses and in their communities,” using relevant data and tools. To more explicitly capture the flow of data from initial observations, to derived information, to integration into end user decision-making, and to the values/benefits of decisions, the ACC is involved in an ongoing ESIP Lab-funded project, “Enabling the encoding and visualization of provenance metadata for better discovery and understanding of climate resilience strategies for agriculture-related decision-making.” Capturing this data-to-decisions (D2D) provenance can inform the value of socioeconomic data and information, and help contribute toward better real-world decision making for agriculture and climate resilience strategies. </p><br><p>Contributors</p><ul><li><p>Nancy J.
