NEON scientists will be hosting a workshop on Big [Ecological] Data for the DSOS (Data Science and Open Science) and AEMON-J (Aquatic Ecosystem Modeling Network - Junior) Hacking Limnology Virtual Workshop and Summit: Incorporating Data Science and Open Science in Aquatic Research. The workshop will take place on Wednesday, July 14th, 15:00-19:00 UTC.
Virtual Summit Details
DSOS and AEMON-J are collaborating this year to organize the 2nd "Virtual Summit: Incorporating Data Science and Open Science in Aquatic Research" that includes presentations about aquatic research including open data and open science approaches, and multiple days of workshops that include keynote talks with live hands-on coding exercises.

NEON Big [Ecological] Data Workshop
"Large datasets are becoming more and more prominent in aquatic research, as our ability to collect data at high spatial and temporal resolution increases, and thanks to efforts to construct long ecological time series. However, the opportunities that such datasets offer, are accompanied by challenges on how to store, download, and work with such large amounts of data. The National Science Foundation's National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) is an expert in monitoring freshwater ecosystems in the United States, and on this day, NEON employees will teach us how to work with NEON datasets."
