OOI Data Workshops

The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) is hosting several workshops for early-career scientists (PhD candidates, postdocs and pre-tenure faculty up to 7 years post-PhD) interested in learning more about the OOI and how to use data from the program in their work.

Workshop Goals

  • Learn about the overall OOI system design and the key science questions it addresses
  • Explore ways to search for and download data available from the OOI
  • Gain further experience processing and visualizing data in Python and/or Matlab
  • Evaluate the quality of OOI datasets
  • Write and submit a data validation report at the end of the workshop

Workshops will be held at Rutgers University. Travel support will be provided.
