Skills for e-infrastructures and data management in global change research
Date: Nov 15, 2016
Global change research encompasses the interdisciplinary investigation of the natural world and how it is changing, from climate change to air quality to ecology and the human interaction with the environment. Global change research is increasingly data intensive, requiring significant computing resources and efficient techniques for effective analysis. This survey is aimed at enabling capacity building in the requisite digital skills for those already working in global change research.
The Belmont Forum (https://belmontforum.org/) is a group of the world's major and emerging funders of global environmental change research. It aims to accelerate delivery of the environmental research needed to remove critical barriers to sustainability by aligning and mobilizing international resources. It pursues the goals set in the Belmont Challenge by adding value to existing national investments and supporting international partnerships in interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary scientific endeavors.
