The lack of clear references to and descriptions of data sets in published literature limits the usefulness of data, as well as the reproducibility and credibility of scientific findings.
Scientists have devised a way of preserving privacy for smart water metering users while also providing water suppliers with information they can use to improve the efficiency of water services.
New methods that help researchers understand the decision-making processes of neural networks could make the machine learning tool more applicable for the geosciences.
Color plays a major role in the analysis and communication of scientific information. New tools are helping to improve how color can be applied more accurately and effectively to data.
A new opportunistic sensing strategy could use existing closed-circuit television networks to accurately capture rainfall intensity, despite low-cost equipment and visually complex scenes.
ACE-DATA/Antarctic Sea-Atmosphere Interactions Data (ASAID) Workshop; 5–6 November 2018, Lausanne, Switzerland
A new digital archive enables community use of terrestrial and subsurface ecosystem data sets.
Magnetic and electric field measurements at Earth’s surface provide information on Earth’s interior and on space weather. An open-source central repository of these data has received a major update.
A look back at the life of Greg Leptoukh, pioneer of informatics, and a look ahead to the field’s future through the annual lecture at AGU’s Fall Meeting 2018 dedicated to Leptoukh.
A recent paper in JGR: Biogeosciences demonstrates that sharing data has positive benefits not just for the scientific community but also for the one doing the sharing.
