Geo-Congressional Visits Day 2016

GeoCVD Logo
Follow along #GeoCVD2016 on Twitter and Instagram to see what fellow geoscientists are doing for the Geoscience Congressional Visits Day. Yesterday the participating scientists were given an orientation briefing on how Congress works, and how laws can affect the geosciences both nationally, and at the state level. Today they are touring the House and Senate where they are meeting with their legislators. This annual event is hosted by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), the Geological Society of America (GSA), the Seismological Society of America (SSA), the Soil Science Society of America (SSSA), the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the American Geosciences Institute (AGI). AGU has allowed "Guest-Grammers" to share their experiences at Geo-CVD over Instagram. Geo-CVD has made an impact on many scientists, usually as their first experience at the policy-making level. 

Accessing LOCA Downscaling Via OPeNDAP and the Geo Data Portal with R.

Introduction

In this example, we will use the R programming language to access LOCA data via the OPeNDAP web service interface using the ncdf4 package then use the geoknife package to access LOCA data using the Geo Data Portal as a geoprocessing service. More examples like this can be found at the Geo Data Portal wiki.
