Scientists are faced with many challenges throughout the research lifecycle ranging from data collection and management to collaboration and reproducible science. These challenges are exacerbated for large studies by increased scope and complexity that results from the interdisciplinary nature of water science. The next generation of water scientists must be comfortable using a variety of software, tools, and platforms on a daily basis to efficiently and effectively conduct their research. The Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Sciences, Inc. (CUAHSI) aims to assist scientists in these efforts by investing in community-driven cyberinfrastructure research projects. This cyberseminar series presents efforts made by CUAHSI to alleviate the burden common of data-related tasks and is separated into three distinct seminars that collectively discuss the challenges associated with data management, collaboration, and reproducible science. Each seminar will focus on a specific scientific use cases and will demonstrate how free and open source software can be used to overcome data-related research challenges. Participants will learn about new technologies that can assist both academic and educational water science settings.
