We'll look at primary data related to marine science--with a focus on coral reef research. We'll look at how scientists collect data from the ocean, and what it looks like once collected. The point of the session is to "know your data," and in this case the data is all about the ocean. In addition, I'll be showing some data on fresh water that I received from Mark Nichols, who couldn't attend. We'll provide some samples to participants.
David will be showing data related to toxins in the environment. Dinah will talk about her work as an environmental journalist. You'll receive more details from them.
All three of us will provide links to useful sites for locating environmental data.
