Town Hall “Opportunities to Strengthen Your Science (and Proposals) using GEOTRACES Data”
Thursday, February 25, 2016: 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Location: Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, 228-230
2016 Ocean Sciences Meeting, New Orleans, USA
Description: GEOTRACES released its first intermediate data product (IDP2014), featuring dissolved trace elements and their isotopes, during the 2014 Ocean Science meeting. The next data product (IDP2017) will more than double the amount of data and number of variables, including particulate elements. This town hall will: 1) Inform the community about strategies to access, download and manipulate data from IDP2014 and provide preliminary information about IDP2017; 2) Seek feedback from users of IDP2014 to improve IDP2017 and make it as user-friendly as possible; and 3) Present the outcome of the first Iron-Model Intercomparison Project (FeMIP), in which comparison to GEOTRACES data allowed an unprecedented assessment of model performance.
We hope to see you there!
