Cosponsored by IN, GP, MR, OS, PP, DI, T, V. Physical samples of Earth materials are fundamental to geoscience research and key to our knowledge of EarthÕs dynamical systems. This town hall intends to bring together the community concerned with physical samples to review the status of sample preservation and access in the digital age and learn about initiatives to advance sharing and reuse of samples through the development of shared cyberinfrastructure, standards, and best practices.
