ESSIC associate research scientist Liqing Jiang was part of a development team that produced the award-winning online data submission system, Send2NCEI. The system developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) automates data management and submissions for the environmental data the agency hosts. Jiang’s federal colleagues on the Send2NCEI’s development team received the NOAA Bronze Medal for their efforts.
Jiang, who originated the idea for the utility, both coded a prototype and coordinated Send2NCEI’s development. “Liqing was instrumental in helping us develop and launch the Send2NCEI effort,” said NCEI Director Mary Wohlgemuth.
