Data Management 101 for the Earth Scientist – 2011 AGU Conference Workshop

Don’t let science leave you behind.  The proliferation of data from all sources requires today’s scientists to be aware of sound data management practices.  In this free half-day workshop, everything the modern data-producing scientist needs to know about data management will be introduced.  We will discuss the rationale for data management planning and the context of NSF’s requirement for a 2 page data management plan to accompany every proposal; dealing with data during the course of your research; creating metadata for discovery, access, use and archiving, finding and working with a long term archive; as well as properly giving credit to other data producers.  This workshop is open to all AGU attendees.  There will be time for discussion of your data-related questions.  Feel free to bring samples of the data in question to the workshop.  Laptops are encouraged.


Sponsored by NOAA and the Data Conservancy, and conducted by the ESIP Federation.


Tuesday, December 6 from 1:00-5:00 pm in the San Francisco Marriott Marquis, Salons 10-12.  Point of contact: Carol Meyer (
