8th Young Environmental Scientists Meeting (YES-SETAC)

During this event, members from the LifeWatch VLIZ team gave a short course on Friday February 8th:


Marine environmental data: principles of good data management and access to open data resources

Within this course an overview of the main principles of good data management (documenting, archiving, data formatting, integration, and standardization) was presented. There was a focus on European open marine environmental spatial data types from different disciplines (biology, chemistry, geology, and physics) and how the data can be used. Participants were trained hands-on on how these marine European open data resources can be accessed and used for analysis in R.
