The CSDMS Integration Facility develops and maintains a suite of products and services with the goal of supporting research in the Earth and planetary surface processes community. This includes products such as Landlab, the Basic Model Interface, Data Components, the Model Repository, EKT Labs, and ESPIn. Examples of services include the Help Desk, Office Hours, RSEaaS, and the OpenEarthscape JupyterHub.
One problem, though, is that if the community doesn't know about these products and services, then they don't get used—and, like the Old Gods in Neil Gaiman's "American Gods", they fade into obscurity. Let's break the cycle! Please join us for this clinic where we will present information about all of the products and services offered by CSDMS, and explain how they can help you accelerate your research. The clinic format will consist of a lecture (what are these products and services?), interactive exercises (how do these things work?), and listening (how can CSDMS provide better products and services?). Attendees will leave with knowledge of what CSDMS can do for them, which they can bring back to their home institutions and apply to their research and share with their colleagues.
