We've made it to December. Hope the SEN Newsletter has brought you some useful information in 2014 (see the archive here), and we look forward to more experiments in 2015.
Some events and activities to consider:
- Town Hall on Publishing and Sharing Earth Surface Process Data @AGU
- Workshop on Modelling mixed-sediment river morphodynamics
- Sharing SEN research codes on GitHub
- What does SEN going Dutch look like? Utrecht Workshop
Town HallTH13D: Publishing and Sharing Earth Surface Process Data
Monday, December 15, 2014,12:30 PM - 01:30 PM
Moscone West 2008
We invite both data sharing rookies and professionals to come and discuss needs, obstacles, and existing resources.
Join us for a discussion on publishing and sharing Earth Surface process data. The session goal is to agree upon a set of descriptive fields for proper curation and efficient reuse of Earth-surface related data for experimentalists, modelers, and field investigators. Guidelines will be developed to support our community in preserving, sharing, and publishing data more consistently despite disparate research methods. We will use Sediment Experimentalist Network (SEN) laboratory experiments as an initial example but seek commentary from the broader EPSP community. Students and early career investigators are especially encouraged to attend.
If you have any concerns or questions about this topic in advance of the town hall, we'd be happy to hear about them: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Workshop on Modelling mixed-sediment river morphodynamicsFrom abrading particles to river profile concavity...
27-28-29 May 2015
Water Lab, Faculty of Civil Engineering & Geosciences
Delft University of Technology, Delft, Netherlands
In the workshop we will discuss topics that deal with modelling mixed-sediment fluvial processes, covering a wide range of scales.

To receive future circulars, contact the organizers, Astrid Blom (email@example.com) and Enrica Viparelli (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Sharing SEN research codes on GitHub"If you write code for research, you’re missing out if you’re not on GitHub."

In collaboration with the GeoSoft project, SEN has launched a GitHub repository and is looking for members! Let us know if you have a GitHub account, and we'll send an invite to join the repository (notify email@example.com with your username). In the coming months, we'll be sharing scripts from our Community Experiments. SEN members may also post any code they'd like to share.
