eddy4R-Docker demo/workshop details

This workshop will take place at the Garden Hilton Inn near the AGU 2017 meeting from 7pm - 10pm on Dec 12, 2017. NEON has begun to add to the family of eddy-covariance software a set of open-source “eddy4R” packages in the R language for statistical computing. eddy4R intends to provide raw-data processing capabilities that complement existing high-level functionalities of e.g. the “REddyProc” R-package. Together they are wrapped into a reproducible, shareable and extensible eddy-covariance processing environment based on Docker containerization technology.

In short: on the basis of pre-provided templates an eddy-4R Docker user can easily construct end-to-end workflows from raw data to hypothesis testing in single processing environment. In case this sounds interesting, you can find more information here:

Model Dev., 10, 3189-3206, doi:10.5194/gmd-10-3189-2017, 2017.

For accessing, installing and operating the processing environment please see section 2.6 “Installation and operation” (page 8) and the “Code and data availability” section (page 16). Please be aware that out of six eddy4R packages in development this release includes only the first two packages (basic statistical and QA/QC functionalities). More information on the complete range of capabilities can be found in section 2.1 “The eddy4R family of R packages” (page 4).
