It’s the end of October and there’s plenty of news for experimentalists.
- New video about the Sediment Experimentalist Network (SEN)
- New data journal - Nature Scientific Data
- Sediment Experimentalists at AGU - Town Hall and Scientific Session
1. New video about the Sediment Experimentalist Network (SEN)
The Sediment Experimentalist Network (SEN) has been funded as part of the NSF EarthCube initiative. Watch this 2-minute video to see what we are planning to do over the next few years, then watch more EarthCube project videos.
2. New data journal - Nature Scientific Data
The Nature Publishing group has announced a new journal, Scientific Data, for descriptions of scientifically valuable datasets. Scientific Data “introduces a new type of content called the Data Descriptor designed to make your data more discoverable, interpretable and reusable.”
See their examples of Data Descriptors and think about how to apply it to sedimentary experimental data! [Sample Data Descriptor 1] [Sample Data Descriptor 2].
3. Sediment Experimentalists at AGU - Town Hall and Scientific Sessions
If you are attending AGU, mark Wednesday December 11th as Sediment Experimentalist Day. We are co-convening scientific sessions and a Town Hall. Hope to see you there!
