Carole Palmer, Professor Emeritus

CIRSS researchers will make a strong showing as they share their expertise in scientific data curation at this week’s 46th annual Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU). The meeting, scheduled for December 9-13 in San Francisco, California, is the largest worldwide conference in the geophysical sciences, gathering more than 24,000 earth and space scientists, educators, students, and other leaders.

Representing CIRSS at this year’s AGU conference are Carole Palmer, GSLIS professor and director of CIRSS, and GSLIS PhD students Karen Baker and Andrea Thomer. Palmer and Baker have been invited to give presentations on earth and space science informatics. Palmer’s talk, part of the Data Curation, Credibility, Preservation Implementation, and Data Rescue to Enable Multi-source Science session, will present research from the CIRSS project Site-Based Data Curation at Yellowstone National Park (SBDC). Baker will present her research into data management issues and strategies originating from within long-term research communities, as part of the meeting’s session on Data Stewardship in Theory and in Practice.
