Earthcube Domain End-User Workshop: Engaging the Critical Zone Community to Bridge Long-Tail Science With Big Data

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This workshop served two objectives: (1) to engage approximately 45 cyber-literate Critical Zone scientists in the EarthCube process and (2) to inform about 20 of EarthCube’s cyberscientists of the diversity of needs of Critical Zone science. The overall goal of the workshop was to develop a set of unifying requirements for the integration of “long tail” data and “big data” and to develop an interactive community of domain scientists and cyberscientists to pursue solutions.
