This study focuses on long-standing problems of coupled water and carbon budgets through development of a new scientific paradigm, <i>The Age of Water and Carbon,</i> that melds  theory and practice from limnology and hydrology within the new collaborative paradigm of [[Organic_Data_Science | Organic Data Science]]. We are integrating analytical frameworks from two communities – hydrology and isotope modeling in [http://criticalzone.org Critical Zone Observatories (CZOs)] and hydrodynamic water quality modeling from the [http://www.gleon.org Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON)]  – to quantify water and material fluxes from two research sites, the Shales Hills CZO and the GLEON member site, [http://www.lternet.edu/sites/ntl North Temperate Lakes LTER]. This foundation will serve as a nexus for participation by multiple communities and will seed the growth of additional science through shared ideas, knowledge, and data.

What is Organic Data Science?

We are investigating Organic Data Science, a new approach aimed to allow scientists to formulate and resolve science processes through an open framework that facilitates ad-hoc participation and entice collaborators based on attractive science goals. Organic Data Science allows scientists to formulate and resolve science processes through an open framework that facilitates ad-hoc participation and entice collaborators based on attractive science goals.

Technical and Social Aspects of Organic Data Science

We are pursuing a social computing approach that takes into account human aspects such as incentives and participation, while providing the fabric for representing and coordinating tasks involved in accomplishing science goals. Our approach will openly expose science tasks, facilitating inspection and engagement of new potential contributors. The collaboration will grow in an organic way, drawing in people and other contributions from existing data providers and cyberinfrastruture resources.

Ongoing Technical Activities

We are working on several major activities:

  1. Design the technical aspects of our organic data science framework
  2. Understand the human-centered computing aspects of organic data science

Contributing to this project

There is a growing set of contributors to the project.

We are testing this framework with a collaborative research project focused on the theoretical and experimental aspects of the isotopic age of water. Visit that project site.
