RAMADDA Hackathon

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

The Long Hot Summer of 2012 - An Experiment in Science Collaboration

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, ...)
