A new YESS perspective is out!

Climate model data has been increasing progressively over the past decades. This is leading to a shift towards data-intensive activities in climate sciences which in turn is posing challenges for the current generation such as striking a balance between time expended in data-intensive and other foundational climate science activities. Through this form, we want to know your perspective on these growing data-intensive activities in climate sciences and what we can do to help early-career researchers (ECRs) achieve this balance.

Though it is not mandatory, we encourage you to read the accompanying article which describes our concerns in detail before filling out this form. The full article can be found here: 𝗔𝗿𝗲 𝗪𝗲 𝗮𝘁 𝗥𝗶𝘀𝗸 𝗼𝗳 𝗟𝗼𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗚𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝗖𝗹𝗶𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗥𝗲𝘀𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝗗𝗮𝘁𝗮 𝗦𝗰𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲? (https://doi.org/10.1029/2022av000676)

Filling this form will only take a few minutes but will allow us to better understand the challenges you are facing and how we can best address them and make our community grow.

  • Who can fill this form? We welcome inputs from researchers of all career stages and from all sectors working on topics related to earth system sciences.
  • What can you share? We are keen to know the challenges or opportunities the big climate data provides you. You are also welcome to share your concerns, perspective, experiences, or stories relevant to this topic.
  • What will we do with your feedback? We plan to analyze the feedback received through this form and report the key findings in a follow-up perspective paper.

Please note that by filling out this form, you automatically provide us consent to use the information for a follow-up perspective paper, and presentation in meetings and conferences. This form is anonymous by default and all feedback received through this form will be reported as anonymous. There is also an option to provide your name and email address at the end, in case you wish to be identified or contacted. Questions followed by an asterisk (*) are mandatory.

If you have any further questions on this form, please contact gro.ytinummoc-sseynull@eugitafatad.

This form will remain open until 15 October 2022.
