I was inspired to combine my personal vacation to Chile with a trip that Julie Loisel had planned for peat sampling, so we met up in Patagonia near Puerto Natales in May 2018. Have a look at my interview with Julie: https://youtu.be/il1KCMFXX5Y
This little bog was cored by Julie’s students Michael Bunsen, Eric Nutt, Julia Hillin and postdoctoral researcher at University Magellanes in Punta Arenas Claudia Mansilla:
I asked Julie where this was headed in terms of data and our common visions for ISCN.
“Well after our ISCN data hackathon for C-Peat, we’re getting savvy enough to organize our data from the START in a way that’s really compatible with R, SOC-DRaHR, and with contributions into ISCN database versions. The point is to craft common data structures so we don’t have to go back and re-configure the raw information when we’re ready for comparisons and larger syntheses”
Ya. Kind of like a snowball. Roll it over the new so it sticks to the old and gets bigger.
