Topic - Cart before the horse: system QA and data QC practices for sensor networks  

The ESIP EnviroSensing Cluster is a workgroup within the Earth Science Information Partners Federation. The cluster was formed in 2012 as a community of mostly NSF-LTER network and data managers. It has since grown to include a wide range of scientific and agency participants, but still remains focused on its mission of pursuing best practices and solutions for in-situ sensor observation of environmental processes. The Cluster produced a Best Practices document for sensor network deployments in 2014, and assembles once a month for web calls on cluster projects and guest presentations. The EnviroSensing Cluster is an open, inclusive, and collaborative community that seeks to better science and engineering related to observations in the natural environment.
