Freshwater-eScience Hands on Water Speaker Series!

Freshwater-eScience Hands on Water Speaker Series!

Please join us for the Freshwater-eScience Hands On Water seminar.   In this quarterly speaker series we will feature state of the art innovators and the tools they are building to tackle data science and modeling challenges critical to the understanding, conservation and management of freshwater resources and ecosystems, including communicating scientific information of broad societal interest. Topics will range from local to global in scale and span physical, biogeochemical and biological disciplines as well as human impacts, infrastructure and resource management. We are supporting a “Hands On”  approach to having participants interact with open source water data and models using online resources.  

Upcoming  Freshwater-eScience Hands on Water Seminar

When: Friday, June 9 at 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

Where: WRF Data Science Studio, UW Physics/Astronomy Tower, 6th Floor, Campus Box 351570, 3910 15th Ave NE, UW Seattle Campus

Overview: What is HydroShare?  We will have a seminar and geohack-style workshop with HydroShare principal investigator Dr. David Tarboton (Utah State University) on Friday June 9 at 3:00 pm -4:30 pm.  

We will give a short introduction on the cyberinfrastructure design, current features, and future development plans followed by demonstrations on how to access big water datasets, develop models, and publish your work (data, analysis, code) using HydroShare Apps and Jupyter Notebooks.  Topics will range from local to global in scale and span physical, biogeochemical and biological disciplines as well as human impacts, infrastructure and resource management.   We are supporting a “Hands On”  approach to having participants interact with open source water data and models using online resources.
