The earth-surface science community is producing increasing volumes of data in laboratory, numerical, and field studies. What new tools and resources can help us wrangle these data into meaningful scientific knowledge? Wherever you might be in the research lifecycle – planning experiments, preparing a manuscript, or recovering old data from hard drives – this year’s Sediment Experimentalist Network (SEN) clinic will inform you on leading practices for data planning, management, and publication.
In recent years, policies and tools have evolved with the potential to greatly increase our efficiency in dealing with scientific data. We’ll cover topics that will help throughout the data and experimental lifecycle, including the SEN Knowledge Base (sedexp.net), the growing collection of research data repositories, and AGU’s Enabling FAIR data project.
Enrollees will be contacted a couple weeks prior to the CSDMS meeting to engage in some brief pre-workshop activities to prepare for the clinic. We encourage participants to come prepared with information about their research projects, from which we can engage in practical discussions about data planning and management.
