Want to see how your data compare and contribute to comprehensive datasets? Interested in finding new uses for old data? Want to help us grow our “Underground Network” in one searchable database? Bring your own soil carbon data or work with existing datasets! In this hackathon we’ll craft R scripts to harmonize soil carbon data and build teams for future collaborations. Soil survey, field experiments, and laboratory incubation, soil respiration data are welcome, though we are not currently set-up to work with ‘omics or high resolution MS/NMR data.
