*Data Management 101 for Earth Scientist, Tuesday, Dec. 6 :: 1-5 pm :: San
Francisco Marriott Marquis, Salons 10-12*
Don’t let science leave you behind. The proliferation of data from all
sources requires today’s scientists to be aware of sound data management
practices. In this free half-day workshop, everything the modern
data-producing scientist needs to know about data management will be
introduced. We will discuss the rationale for data management planning and
the context of US National Science Foundation's requirement for a 2-page
data management plan to accompany every proposal; dealing with data during
the course of your research; creating metadata for discovery, access, use
and archiving, finding and working with a long-term archive; as well as
properly giving credit to other data producers. This workshop is open to
all AGU attendees. Laptops are encouraged and bring a data set you would
like help with. Sponsored by NOAA and the Data Conservancy, and conducted
by the ESIP Federation.
