Earth Lab EDS Seminar Series

Earth Lab EDS Seminar Series

Are you looking to broaden your perspectives in Earth and environmental data science? Are you excited to collaborate with others and hear about new developments in this area?

These weekly sessions are intended to inspire collaboraitons and creative problem solving using data and analytics for a broad range of environmental science topics. Each week will be led by someone and can take on many forms: data jams, ractice conference talks (15 min) w/ Q&A, paper Discussions, brainstorming, 30 min lecture, other.

Topics must be about using *big data* to advance knowledge of the dynamics and interactions of the Earth system, towards actionable insights and tools

Starting Spring 2022, Earth Lab will be hosting a regular weekly 50-min seminar series on topics related to Environmental Data Science (EDS) that uses big data to advance knowledge of the dynamics and interactions of the Earth systems, towards actionable insights and tools.
 
Purpose: To reignite collaborations by inspiring creative problem solving by sharing the many interesting projects and work that Earth Lab and affiliates have been doing to advance the use of data for environmental challenges. 
 
Who: Earth Lab affiliates, CU affiliates, and other interested parties are invited to attend.
When: Tuesdays 11:00-11:50 AM (MST) beginning on 1/18/22
Where: Seminar on 1/18/22 will be held remotely due to campus closures; all others are scheduled to be in a hybrid format (Zoom and VizStudio, SEEC S372 A&B).
What: View the schedule of events here.  
Why: We wish to reinvigorate the Earth Lab community and facilitate collaborative interactions that have been challenging during extended work-from-home time.
 
To receive weekly announcements and reminders about future talks, SIGN UP HERE to be added to our listserv. 
 
Also attached is a recurring calendar invite. This is a series invite, if you ever plan to attend, please “tentatively accept” and decline individual events once this is saved to your calendar. 

This week's topic: Biodiversity across Scales: Microbes to Canopies

Speaker: Natasha Stavros - CIRES Lab

NSIDC Cryosphere Seminar

NSIDC Cryosphere Seminar

Comparison of long-term sea ice extent and area trends from three NSIDC passive microwave sea ice products by Walt Meier, CIRES NSIDC, Senior Research Scientist and DAAC Scientist

Abstract: Passive microwave sensors provide a long, consistent, and nearly-complete record of sea ice concentration since 1979. This represents one of the longest satellite-derived climate records. The records indicate a substantial decline in Arctic sea ice cover over the past 40+ years while the Antarctic displays large inter-annual variability with only small trends. Several algorithms have been developed to determine concentration from passive microwave sensors. Here, three products archived at NSIDC are inter-compared to assess the long-term trends in sea ice extent and area from the three products. Both hemispheric and regional analyses are done, based on a newly-developed region mask. The hemispheric trends are generally consistent, but differences between the products do have impacts on interpretation of the small trends in the Antarctic. Regional trends largely follow the hemispheric trends, but some regions have unique features. 

Bio: Walt Meier is a senior research scientist at NSIDC, a center within CIRES at the University of Colorado. As part of the NASA Snow and Ice Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) at NSIDC, he is the DAAC Scientist, providing scientific expertise and NASA DAAC data and services. His research focuses on passive microwave sea ice product, including sea ice concentration, motion, and age. He has an MS and PhD from the University of Colorado in Atmospheric and Oceanic Science and a BS in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan.
