Methods for Scientific Data Management
If you have already completed Meteo 473, you may be interested in an exciting, brand new 1-credit course being offered in Spring 2014 by the Meteorology Department.
Meteorology 498A is titled "Methods for Scientific Data Management." The course will be a survey of scientific database management, analysis methods, and graphical tools, running the gamut from data acquisition to product delivery for targeted clients. Such database management skills are highly valued by employers, as anyone who has attended the Career Fair can attest.
The course will be led by Chuck Pavloski and Chad Bahrmann. For those of you don't know them, Chuck oversees the department's computer systems, while Chad is a systems administrator who provides extensive support to research programs, specifically with data management. Dr. Eugene Clothiaux and Dr. Nese will sit in on the class as well.
As mentioned, the course is one credit and will meet once per week on Mondays (starting on January 13) from 2:30-3:20pm in 126 Walker. Course enrollment is limited to 30 students. The course will be graded Pass/Fail. A preliminary syllabus is attached.
The course is listed on the official University Schedule of Courses and is available now for sign-up. We hope to see many of you there.
If you have any questions, feel free to see Dr. Nese, Dr. Clothiaux, Chuck or Chad.
