Welcome to the website for the Coastlines and people Open data and MachinE learning sprinT. COMET is a series of 72hr events focused on data-driven Coastlines and People (CoPe) science.
Atleast three COMET events are planned (one virtual, two in-person), with funding for ~10-15 participants to attend each event (lodging, travel, per diem). Each participant will bring a research idea to pitch to the others - ideas should focus on using open data to do science related to Coastlines and People. After project pitches, participants will divide up into self-selected groups to work on ideas for 72 hrs.
Groups will give a final ‘report out’ after 72 hrs to present what they accomplished. All code written at the event will be made open source, put on GitHub, and given a DOI, and groups will also submit a report/working paper to EarthArXiv. We intend for these open deliverables to be the seeds of future research between participants and the wider CoPe Community.
