NASA Surface Biology and Geology (SBG) is actively seeking user community input to understand how future SBG datasets and information products can be of value to users overall and in targeted application areas.

NASA JPL, in coordination with RTI International, is undertaking a study to inform the applications and the information access and product development of the planned NASA hyperspectral and thermal imaging satellite mission Surface Biology and Geology (SBG). This is a unique opportunity to inform and influence the development of SBG to better serve the earth observation needs of the global conservation and biodiversity community and private sector/NGO user communities.

The fourth event in the MRI Anniversary Lecture Series took place today, celebrating 20 years since the MRI Coordination Office was founded in 2001. This series aims to showcase MRI synthesis workshop research and build capacity in the mountain research community.

SoilBON is an open network of scientists and practitioners that aims to create a research platform for tracking and assessing soil biodiversity and functions across the world, particularly in mountain areas. 

As a first step, this primarily means that we need to have a balanced distribution of sampling sites across the world without much clustering and overlap. In the past few weeks we have been gathering collaborators all over the world, but we are still far from having a balanced and well represented distribution of global soil conditions.
