Sediment Experimentalist Network August News

Dear Experimentalists,

We hope your summer has been a fun and productive one. Here are a few news items before the Fall begins!

1. Take the Sediment Experimentalist Network (SEN) challenge
2. Follow Sediment Experimentalists on Twitter
3. Stratodynamics workshop keynote talks to be broadcast online (August 27, 28, 29 in United States time zones)

1. Take the Sediment Experimentalist Network (SEN) Challenge

Complete as many of the data-related tasks as you can, then email sedimentexp@gmail.com by Sept 1, 2013, with a record of what you completed.
We will choose randomly from the highest-ranking student participants for support to a future SEN activity.

The tasks range from creating Investigator IDs, to short surveys, to joining NSF communities that are talking about data and cyberinfrastructure. Everyone on the mailing list has already completed task #1!


2. Follow Sediment Experimentalists on Twitter
