Increased use of information technology has fundamentally transformed
Earth sciences, leading to an era of computationally-driven,
data-intensive research. While methods for collecting data are well
taught, there is less emphasis on managing the resulting data
effectively. Agency and publisher policy changes require increased
data management and scientists with good management skills will be
able to maximize the productivity of their own research, effectively
and efficiently share their data with the community, and benefit from
the re-use of their data by others. This session will cover tools,
techniques and best practices for organizing and sharing data
throughout the data lifecycle with an emphasis on open source products
and services.
