Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to the tools based session on
"Managing Ecological Data for Effective Use and Reuse" at the upcoming AGU
meeting. Though listed for ecological data, the focus is on tools,
techniques and best practices and these will be applicable across broad
domains.  Abstract submission closes on August 6th and can be completed via
http://fallmeeting.agu.org/2013/ .


NUMBER: ED027 (Education)
TITLE: Managing Ecological Data for Effective Use and Reuse

Amber E Budden, Director Communication and Outreach, DataONE

Karthik Ram, Ecologist and Developer, University of California Berkeley

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.
