Open Earth Sprint Session - Grain size data
1871 HA Schoorl, Netherlands
As in previous years, prior to the 2015 NCK Days "Icebreaker", www.OpenEarth.nl organizes a hands-on sprint session. In this sprint session, we will explain how to access and visualize some great, open-access, grain size datasets of the Dutch coast:
- Sediment Atlas WaddenZee (RWS): 7500(!) distribution curves in Marsdiep-EmsDollard
- TNO 13.000(!) cores for the entire Dutch continental shelf via NODC/SeaDataNet
- TNO dz10, dz50, dz90 maps with 200m resolution for the entire Dutch Continental Shelf
- Along the Dutch beaches, grain sizes for dune safety assessment (RWS)
During this sprint session you’ll learn how to work with these free data in Matlab and/or Python. Bring your own laptop to work with the data, and take a copy home.
