To rescue, archive, save and publish critical environmental data from federal agencies, such as the EPA, NOAA and Census Bureau
What is Data Rescue Boulder, and How Can You Get Involved?
I created Data Rescue Boulder to focus on archiving and saving dataset information that would be of interest, or of critical need to the CU Boulder and local scientific community and which is part of the public data that is quickly disappearing from access. Data created and used by agencies such as the EPA, NOAA, CDC, and the CENSUS Bureau.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
CU Boulder is not only an excellent academic setting for students to learn about science and the environment, but is unique in that it has immediate access to many local federal science-based organizations, such as the EPA, and NOAA.
Research is not only conducted through these local agencies, but is utilized by the many departments within the University. Obviously a loss of access to this data would be devastating to researchers, students and the public. Data Rescue Boulder part a larger, national effort, organize by Data Refuge and the Environmental Data Governance Intiative, and all Data Rescue activity is also coordinated with the goals and outcomes which we are proud to support, and who's logo we've been allowed to display on our FB page and on Twitter.
Data Rescue Boulder will focus on critical rescue of actual datasets, and publish them for everyone to use.
This will be the first Data Rescue effort to accomplish this incredible task.
