Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Organizers announce a webinar entitled Permafrost Discovery Gateway, Geospatial Data and Community Needs. This webinar will feature Anna Liljedahl, Associate Scientist at Woods Hole Research Center and Principal Investigator of the Permafrost Discovery Gateway, and will take place 12 May 2020 at 12:00 p.m. EDT.

Webinar Abstract

The Permafrost Discovery Gateway is a new National Science Foundation (NSF) Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) award that will create an online platform for archiving, processing, analyzing, and visualizing permafrost big imagery products for discovery and knowledge-generation. This new online scientific gateway will provide access to high resolution satellite data products and visualization tools that expand on the Gapminder Foundation, Google Earth, and Fluid Earth Viewer to enable exploration of changes in permafrost across decades. Designed as a community resource, creators want input across all stages of development. Join this interactive webinar to learn about the Permafrost Discovery Gateway and inform initial development. Which geospatial data are critical for inclusion? How will you use the resource and what functionality do you need? How can creators improve on efficiencies in your data discovery and access workflow?
