Join ESS-DIVE at the annual Environmental System Science (ESS) Program Principal Investigators Meeting that begins on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, and concludes on Thursday, May 26, 2022. The ESS-DIVE team will present at multiple sessions at this virtual meeting hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy.
On Tuesday, May 24, 2022 the ESS-DIVE team will present the following hands-on data management trainings from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm ET that will help you better understand and use various ESS-DIVE features for managing project data. Here are more details:
New user bootcamp
Presenter: Emily Robles
Breakout room A
Learn how to upload and publish data with ESS-DIVE as a new contributor in this hands-on training session. We will go over the process for publishing data on ESS-DIVE, from important considerations for organizing data and accompanying metadata, to requesting publication and following the dataset review process. We will also discuss how to utilize the ESS-DIVE main portal search features and download data.
Project data management
Presenters: Charuleka Varadharajan and Madison Burrus
Breakout room B
This session is designed for PI’s and data managers who want to learn how to manage project data on ESS-DIVE. We will first provide an overview of how ESS-DIVE can support a project’s data management needs. We will then describe how projects can use ESS-DIVE features to curate and manage data including: (1) a package Service API for bulk programmatic dataset creation and editing (2) sharing datasets with project members for collaborative editing and review. (3) linking data on ESS-DIVE to related datasets on other public data repositories (4) portals to showcase data collections, and (5) an upcoming feature to manage project members and data.
ESS-DIVE data formats
Presenters: Robert Crystal-Ornelas and Dylan O’Ryan
Breakout room C
In this session, we will discuss ways that researchers can make research data more reusable using ESS-DIVE’s 11 community data and metadata formats. These data formatting templates apply to many data types relevant to earth and environmental science research. They include general formats that apply to many data types (CSV files, file-level metadata, locations, samples, model data), and formats for specific data types (water and sediment chemistry, sensor-based hydrological monitoring, leaf-level gas exchange, soil respiration, and amplicon abundance). In this session, participants will apply the reporting formats to tabular data, and hear from researchers who are currently using reporting formats on their own environmental data and metadata.
There will be plenty of time to share your questions, comments, and other thoughts with the ESS-DIVE team throughout each session. Other ESS-DIVE activities at the event include an overview poster and a plenary talk by Shreyas Cholia on Thursday, May 26 from 11:55 am-12:05 pm ET.
