The Long Hot Summer of 2012 - An Experiment in Science Collaboration[edit | edit source]

Come one, come all, to experiment with science collaboration using the RAMADDA tool

We'll be collecting data, information and other resources related to the "hot" topics this summer, including:

  1. the derecho of June 29
  2. the fires in Colorado in June and July
  3. the drought in Kansas
  4. the heat waves of May / June / July (take your pick!)
  5. socio-economic impacts (agriculture, water resources, ...)
