Exploring GEOTRACES data with Ocean Data View
Sunday, 26 June 2016 (9-16h), Yokohama, Japan
This is a 1-day Workshop of the Goldschmidt 2016 Conference
Deadline to register: 1st June 2016
Space is limited, so sign up early!
Organizers: Jing Zhang, Reiner Schlitzer, Elena Masferrer
This hands-on workshop will teach standard and advanced ODV methods for the exploration and scientific analysis of environmental data. The GEOTRACES Intermediate Data Product 2014 (IDP) will be used as example dataset. Participants will learn how to create publication-ready maps, property-property plots and sections and how to apply simple or advanced station and sample filters. In addition, an overview over the wide range of derived variables available in ODV will be given and a number of variables often needed in geochemical research will be described and applied. This includes aggregation, interpolation, unit conversion, differentiation and integration. Note that creation of spinning 3D scenes is beyond the scope of this workshop. The workshop starts with presentations of general software concepts and capabilities, followed by hands-on-sessions for the creation of specific plot types and scientific discussion rounds explaining the findings. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop computer with ODV (http://odv.awi.de/) and the IDP2014 dataset (http://www.bodc.ac.uk/geotraces/data/idp2014/) already installed. Specific requests by participants prior to the workshop or during the event are welcome.
