Data Management 101 for Scientists

NSIDC staff member Ruth Duerr will present a half-day data management workshop at AGU. The workshop will introduce everything the modern data-producing scientist needs to know about data management. Topics include discussing the rationale for data management planning particularly in the context of the National Science Foundation's requirement for a two-page data management plan to accompany every proposal, dealing with data during the course of research, finding and working with a long term archive, and properly giving credit to other data producers.
