Webinar: Data Science for Geosciences: Data Processing


Hosted by Fang Huang, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA

It is often said that 80% of data analysis time is spent cleaning and preparing the data. Moreover, data cleaning is not a one-time job – it is an ever-present need while performing data analysis.

In this webinar, Fang focuses on data processing. He starts by introducing rules that define a tidy dataset. Bearing these rules in mind, he shows how to use relatively simple python code to deal with geoscience data with some visualization. The last part of the webinar will highlight an ongoing project on methane experiments. The webinar should be of interest to any researchers working on data science-related projects.
