Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

To continue to lead the data science and management dimensions of the Deep Carbon Observatory and contribute to program synthesis

  • Amount $468,737
  • City Troy, NY
  • Investigator Peter Fox
  • Year 2018
  • Program Research
  • Sub-program Deep Carbon Observatory

Peter Fox leads a team at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) that both conducts original deep carbon research and provides data management services to the scientists working in the Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO). Funds from this grant will allow Fox and his crew to continue to lead these data science efforts for the final 15 months of the DCO. To date, RPI researchers and tools have made possible breakthroughs by the DCO in, for example, understanding the “social life of minerals,” that is, co-occurrence of minerals, especially carbon-based ones. And RPI efforts have led to fast adoption by DCO researchers of the Jupyter notebook, the popular, web-based interactive computational platform. Going forward, grant funds will support RPI efforts to stimulate and visualize DCO discoveries, and to assure that data, models, publications, and other information are archived and accessible.
