Most representations of the water cycle are flawed, researchers found by analyzing over 450 diagrams: The effects of humans, seasonal changes, and different biomes are often neglected.
His vision and persistence created a 1.4-billion-pixel map of the Gulf of Mexico seafloor—a crucial tool in research on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and a completely new standard for bathymetry maps.
Sensor networks and data mining allow for fully automated, real-time monitoring of radio waves.
OOI Teaching with Data Workshops; New Brunswick, New Jersey, 19–21 May 2017 (chemistry) and 2–4 June 2017 (geology)
A novel interface allows users of MATLAB and GMT, two software packages widely used by the geoscience community, to simultaneously harness the capabilities of both products.
A new climate change app uses interactive data maps to engage users and prompt the exploration of questions related to changing sea levels and climate vulnerability.
Practical and Methodological Challenges of Climate Change Adaptation; Oslo, Norway, 25–26 April 2016
Combining the capabilities of an open-source drawing tool with Google Earth maps allows researchers to visualize real-world cross-sectional data in three dimensions.
By calling attention to the perception of data graphics among color-impaired readers, we hoped to raise awareness of an even more prevalent phenomenon: the misuse of spectral, or “rainbow,” color schemes. David B. Stephenson is quite right regarding the incidence of different forms of color-vision impairment, which varies among racial and ethnic groups and is […]
As a color-blind climatologist, I very much appreciated the important color-awareness issues raised by A. Light and P. J. Bartlein in their recent Eos article titled “The End of the Rainbow? Color Schemes for Improved Data Graphics,” (85(40), 5 October 2004, p. 385). Meteorological and climate information is frequently communicated in the form of highly […]
