Permafrost Discovery Gateway, Geospatial Data and Community Needs
Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events
When: 12 May 2020
Where: Online: 8:00 am AKDT, 12:00 pm EDT
The Permafrost Discovery Gateway is a new NSF Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) award that will create an online platform for archiving, processing, analyzing, and visualizing permafrost big imagery products for discovery and knowledge-generation. This new online scientific gateway will provide access to high resolution satellite data products and visualization tools that expand on the Gapminder Foundation, Google Earth and Fluid Earth Viewer to enable exploration of changes in permafrost across decades. Designed as a community resource, we want input across all stages of development. Join us for this interactive webinar to learn about the Permafrost Discovery Gateway and inform initial development. Which geospatial data are critical for inclusion? How will you use the resource and what functionality do you need? How can we improve on efficiencies in your data discovery and access workflow?

Anna Liljedahl is an Associate Scientist at Woods Hole Research Center and PI of the Permafrost Discovery Gateway. She describes herself as a scientist that enjoys science that spans multiple disciplines and approaches, while her main "currency" is water. More specifically, how climate change is affecting the flow and storage of water in permafrost and/or glacier affected landscapes. More recent interests include cyberinfrastructure enabling of big data science as well as solutions to climate change.
Anna will be joined by a panel of investigators and leaders from the project.
