Poster presented at the 2015 All Hands Meeting.
The Sediment Experimentalist Network (SEN) Research Coordination Network brings together producers and users of data generated by laboratory experiments on sediment processes. Researchers who produce SEN-related data often work with one-of-a-kind laboratory set-ups which lead to unique workflows, processing scripts, and datasets. Nonetheless, these data, scripts, and procedural knowledge have high potential for modification and reuse by other experimentalists, modelers, and field geologists.
SEN strives to improve the efficiency and transparency of sediment experiment research by making data and methods more accessible, facilitating cross-institutional collaborative experiments, and holding community-building workshops, town halls, and live-broadcast experiments. SEN activities center around three components and corresponding working groups - SEN Knowledge Base, SEN Education & Standards, and SEN Experimental Collaboratories.
In addition, SEN's use cases and examples are available for use by Building Blocks. We are working with CINERGI, GeoSoft, and the Geosemantic Framework to test new technology solutions to our community's needs.
