An Information Exchange & Collaboration on Data Management for Environmental Disasters

Wednesday, January 29, 2014
Mobile, AL

This Kick-Off Meeting was held in conjunction with the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference in Mobile, AL.

In the wake of DWH and with the flood of data and new research, this effort seeks to foster communication between existing activities to identify and establish protocols for orderly data collection, storage and retrieval.  This discussion will initiate a working group to exchange ideas and encourage future collaboration on critical environmental event-related data management activities.
