SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A longtime scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey’s Earth Resources Observation and Science Center near Sioux Falls is taking his talents to NASA.

The Argus Leader (http://argusne.ws/1OIoAiW ) reports David Meyer has accepted a two-year detail with the space agency. His duties will include coordinating NASA’s efforts to share climate-related data between federal agencies.

For seven years, Meyer was the project scientist at an EROS center that’s one of 12 NASA sites that process, archive, document and distribute Earth science data and services. Some of the data is used to study wildfires and flooding.

Kevin Murphy with NASA says Meyer is going to be a “vital asset” to the agency. He adds NASA taps “some of the best people throughout the country, including Sioux Falls.”
