On Saturday, 28 April 2018, from 1:30-3:30 pm, 41 attendees from the ACS Silicon Valley Section and from Stanford University met at Stanford’s Hopkins Marine Station (HMS) in Pacific Grove.
For the first hour Dr. Amanda Whitmire, Head Librarian of Hopkins Miller Library and Assistant Director for the Station, covered the history of the Station and a long-term collaborative research project for collecting oceanographic data. Her presentation also included her discovery of this data in the Library and her recent efforts to preserve and provide broader access to this data by having it digitized.
I've just returned from a week in St. Louis, for FOSS4GNA, the Free & Open Source Software for Geospatial conference, where the predominant topics this year were increasing integration of R and RStudio into the geospatial toolkit, big geospatial data management and analysis, and the management and analysis of an increasing array of high-resolution and high-cadence satellite imagery sources.
Earth Day, April 22nd, is coming up soon. The American Chemical Society has expanded activities and events to a week: Chemists Celebrate Earth Week. This year's theme is "Diving into Marine Chemistry." To commemorate Earth Day/Week, the ACS Silicon Valley Section and the Stanford Libraries are holding an event at the Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove on Saturday, April 28, from 1:30-3:30 pm. It will include a talk followed by tours (see flyer). Please join us for this free, family-friendly event.
