Earth Lab spring 2018 interns wrote blogs about the projects that they worked on with faculty, staff, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students. Their work at Earth Lab addresses innovative earth data science topics including:
Analyzing the health effects of fire using hospital, census, meteorological, satellite, and highway data.
Building libraries and tools for R and Python.
These data-intensive projects both contribute to answering key scientific questions and provide students with an opportunity to learn data science skills. You can learn more about the Earth Lab internship program and check out their blogs here.
About The Earth Lab Internship Program
The Earth Lab internship program immerses undergraduate students in data-intensive earth science research. Interns come from departments across campus including Aerospace Engineering, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Geography, Applied Math, Computer Science, and Economics. Projects are in Earth Lab’s science domains of fire, permafrost, data harmonization, erosion, risk and decision making, forest, education and earth analytics. The primary goal of the program is to provide technical and applied career development skills to CU Boulder students.
