The Pole to Pole MBON of the Americas (P2P) and AmeriGEOSS are offering a five-day training program targeting marine scientists in the Americas, from pole to pole, with expertise in coastal ecology. The program will focus on marine biodiversity activities in the field and behind the computer that promote a community of best practices. Specifically, the activities will be to:
- Collect field data across multiple habitats: rocky intertidal and sandy beaches habitats;
- Manipulate tabular and spatial data for standardized data formats, such as Darwin Core, while controlling for quality;
- Publish datasets to the Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) using tools for sharing data;
- 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.
Dates: 06-10 August 2018
Venue: Centro de Biologia Marinha (CEBIMar; Universidade de São Paulo), Praia do Segredo - São Sebastião, São Paulo, , Brazil
