The goal of cross-domain interoperability is to enable reuse of data and models outside the original context in which these data and models are collected and used and to facilitate analysis and modeling of physical processes that are not confined to disciplinary or jurisdictional boundaries. A new research initiative of the U.S. National Science Foundation, called EarthCube, is developing a roadmap to address challenges of interoperability in the earth sciences and create a blueprint for community-guided cyberinfrastructure accessible to a broad range of geoscience researchers and students.

The panel discusses this and related initiatives and projects, focusing on challenges of data discovery, interpretation, access, and integration across domain information systems, assessment of their readiness for cross-domain integration, and technologies enabling interoperability in the geosciences.
