RDSI, TPAC, and volunteers around the world help weather @ home ANZ generate datasets to study the impact of climate change on Australian weather.
David Karoly, Professor of Atmospheric Science at The University of Melbourne, studies the impacts of climate change on weather extremes, such as hot and cold temperatures, droughts, floods, and fire weather.
His team participates in running the weather @ home Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) online climate experiment, with international partners including the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science, the University of Oxford, the UK Met Office, the University of Tasmania, and New Zealand’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA).
Because extreme weather events have always been a part of the Australian and global climate, it is difficult to know whether human-caused climate change has played a role in particular events, such as the heat wave and drought of 2013.
An electronic version (PDF) of the latest issue of share: the newsletter of the Australian National Data Service is now available from the ANDS website: http://ands.org.au/newsletters/index.html
This issue looks at the value of research data for researchers and includes feature articles on data sharing projects; the benefits and barriers to data sharing; how to boost your research profile through your research data; sharing sensitive data; and data storage.
AARNet has analysed the 500,000 transactions recorded for CloudStor use since it was introduced in April 2010. Over 100 TBytes of files have been transferred during this time, with over 11,000 researchers and others making use of it in Australia. Details of this analysis will be presented at the QUESTnet conference being held in Brisbane on 3-Jul-14 by Alex Reid, an Advisor to AARNet on eResearch.
Dr Barbour, founding co-editor of PLOS Medicine, will also talk about the development of PLOS article level metrics and the use of ORCID identifiers.
The webinar will take place on Thursday, 3 July, 12:30pm–1:30pm AEST. Please register.
The RDSI/CAUDIT Vendor Panel continues to accept Request For Proposals (RFPs) on an ongoing basis. The Vendor Panel has been set up to support the procurement of data storage infrastructure by the RDSI Nodes, higher-education and research sector in Australia and New Zealand.
Vendor Panel applicants can apply any time and will be assessed in accordance with the compliance and evaluation criteria by an independent Vendor Panel Evaluation Committee
Current members will remain on the Vendor Panel and do not need to reapply.
Further Information and forms are available from https://www.rdsi.edu.au/join-vendor-panel
