Building well-documented, citable frameworks for Earth data analysis will encourage scientific replicability by addressing the underlying issues that inhibit code sharing.
An integrated data platform harmonizes many disparate soil moisture data sets to better inform disaster response planners, climate scientists and meteorologists, farmers, and others.
A new version of a free Web application (SIGMELTS 2.0) helps Earth scientists interpret electrical anomalies in Earth’s crust and mantle and track the sources of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
More GPS stations, faster data delivery, and better data processing provide an abundance of information for all kinds of Earth scientists.
Version 2 of the Fine-Root Ecology Database is bigger, better, and free to download and use.
Geographic information system software, created for mapping cities and continents, works equally well with the minuscule layers and inclusions that record a crystal’s history.
A newly developed open-access software package called MMA-EoS can calculate whole mantle mineralogy in multicomponent systems by Gibbs energy minimization.
The software could help strengthen ice sheet models to provide a better basis for policy decisions.
GeoDeepDive combines library science, computer science, and geoscience to dive into repositories of published text, tables, and figures and return valuable information.
Researchers assess the federal Water Quality Portal, a Web portal that unites disparate water quality data sets and resources.
