Tags: Core Program

At the American Geophysical Union fall meeting, oldWeather (NPRB Projects 1124, 1226 and 1322) was singled out for honory mention by Elsevier (a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services) and Integrated Earth Data Applicationsand (IEDA, an NSF-funded data facility in the geosciences at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University).

In launching the competition, Elsevier and IEDA aimed to showcase the breadth, depth and diversity of existing initiatives for disclosing research data within the field of geosciences, to promote recognition of these efforts and to encourage new developments in this direction. In addition, they are hoping to encourage the establishment of a multi-disciplinary community across all areas of geosciences to discuss the multitude of tools and methods that are being developed to rescue data from oblivion and stimulate the sharing of knowledge, tools and standards pertaining to making research data reusable across various earth and environmental sciences domains.
