An Integrated Earth Sensing demands seamless access to large-scale geospatial data gathered by remote sensing and in-situ sensor network deployments. To that end, the Global Earth Observation (GEO) Grid provides a framework for sharing a wide array of scientific information such as satellite data, geologic maps, and in-situ sensing data in a standards-compliant manner. In this paper, we describe three applications of GEO Grid in the domain of environmental sensing, disaster management, and largescale geo-science data provisioning. Our approach uses web service technologies to promote interoperability and wider dissemination of technology and data.
