Marine Biodiversity Workshop: From the Sea to the Cloud

São Paulo, Brasil

Event Website

This workshop will engage participants in marine biodiversity activities in the field and behind the computer that promote a community of best practices. Specifically, the activities will be to:

  1. Collect field data across multiple habitats: rocky intertidal and sandy beaches habitats;
  2. Manipulate tabular and spatial data for standardized data formats, such as Darwin Core, while controlling for quality;
  3. Publish datasets to OBIS, using tools for sharing data;
  4. Train on data science tools (R, Rmarkdown, Github) to mine data, conduct discovery and analysis, and produce reproducible research documents with interactive visualizations onto the web.

GRI Faculty Affiliate Brian Helmuth, Professor of Marine and Environmental Sciences, will participate.
