Summary

ICESat-2 Cryospheric Science Hackweek is a 5-day hackweek to be held at the University of Washington. Participants will learn about technologies used to access and process ICESat-2 data with a focus on the cryosphere. Mornings will consist of interactive lectures, and afternoon sessions will involve facilitated exploration of datasets and hands-on software development.

Join us for five days of tutorials, data exploration, software development and community networking focused on open source tools to analyze and visualize ICESat-2 data for cryospheric applications. We will build on tools developed at our 2019 hack week, but attendance to that event is not a prerequisite for our 2020 hack week.

We welcome applications from participants at any career stage and level of technical ability. All tutorials and projects will use the Python programming language, and we will provide links to educational resources in advance of the event for those new to Python.

Application deadline: April 3, 2020.
