What’s CoPe COMET?
- A Science Sprint to do rapid, data-driven Coastlines and People (CoPe) science. A cohort of of researchers will assemble to transform ideas into open scientific products within 72 hrs.
What are the goals?
- Developing collaborative networks of researchers working at the intersection of Coastlines and People
- Creating open science and open knowledge from openly available datasets, processed quickly using open code with open deliverables for researchers and stakeholders along the coast
- Testing sprint events as a means to produce data-driven CoPe research.
- Crowd-sourcing a collection of publicly available data for future use by CoPe researchers and stakeholders
Do I need to use Machine Learning for my proposed project?
- No. Participants don’t need to use ML for their project. We do want people to focus on using open data to do data-driven science.
Do I need to be proficient in Machine Learning to attend these events?
- No. Participants don’t need to be proficient in ML for these events. We are focused more on finding people interested in using open data to do data-driven science.
What is the Basic Event structure?
What are the ‘Open deliverables’?
- Open Code (put on Github with a Zenodo DOI)
- A write-up of what you did during the event (submitted to EarthArXiv)
- Open data, such as new data produced by analysis of existing Open Data (submitted to a suitable repository)
How do I apply?
What does the Quad Chart / ‘Project Pitch’ look like?
- Here is an example (and instructions) from NASA. We prefer you use the Quadrant headers from the example below —
- Q1: research questions/methods,
- Q2: data sources/software,
- Q3: timeline of tasks over three days
- Q4: roles for other participants & possible extensions of project
- Here is an example from Evan and Anna:
