Session ID#: 26672

Session Description:
The time and effort required to discover, visualize, and analyze large quantities of information and Earth science data for research, monitoring, and decision making presents a great challenge to Earth science investigation. Existing data and information systems support experienced users, but prove difficult for new users that are unfamiliar with the variety of formats and structures in which data, metadata, and information are stored and the required methods to use them. To address these concerns, this session solicits presentations demonstrating innovative data services, tools, and approaches to assist broader user communities in both learning and performing discovery, visualization, and analysis of Earth science data. The presented work may include, but is not limited to: data recipes, data and information curation efforts, data processing and analysis tools, science notebooks, structured document database development, data discovery tools, and software tips among developers.
