|ANNOUNCEMENT: IEDA Data Rescue Mini-Awards|
Dear EarthRef community,
IEDA Invites Applications for Data Rescue Mini-Awards
Data sets must be consistent with the IEDA mission "to support access and preservation of solid earth data from the earth, ocean, and polar sciences". Preferred data sets are geochemical analyses of igneous rocks and marine sediments, and marine geology and geophysics data. Depending on interest and success of this pilot project, IEDA hopes to continue funding mini-awards like this in future years.
Applications (maximum 3 pages) should be submitted by April 5, 2013, to IEDA Director Kerstin Lehnert (email@example.com), and should include:
The IEDA User Committee will review all applications and select awardees based on the scientific relevance of the data sets and prospect of the project's successful completion. Funded projects will need to complete the data compilation and documentation by September 30, 2013. IEDA staff will work with each awarded investigator or group of investigators to help identify needed documentation, and will provide guidance and tools to facilitate data documentation and transfer.
