Description:

Climate change has broad and complex effects on natural systems, impacting everything from how plants grow to how often a region floods. Traditional management paradigms, which look to the past to guide decisions, are becoming less effective in this changing world. As a result, many resource stewards are searching for new and innovative tools to help guide their landscapes into the future. The National Climate Adaptation Science Center (NCASC) generates science and decision-making tools to help our nation respond to novel resource management challenges brought on by climate change.  

The selected participant will co-develop standardized data management approaches and workflows for projects funded by the CASC network. Through this research experience, the fellow will have the opportunity to explore earth science community standards for the intake and publication of gridded data sets; contribute to the conversion of data holdings to cloud-optimized formats; and develop documentation of best practices for the handling of big datasets. The participant will assist with curating spatio temporal asset catalog (STAC) metadata and enhancing technical support for data visualizations of CASC data collections. This research will support scientists, data managers, and resource managers throughout the data lifecycle, by contributing to data accessibility and reuse.
