Training in Open Science Enables Synthetic Science within the Gulf Research Program
Using a unique combination of data, Jessica Gephart is trying to help complete the big picture of what a sustainable diet could look like worldwide, with a particular focus on an often-missing ingredient in such analyses: seafood.
The release of EML 2.2.0 gives reason to talk about how better data communication can lead to better science, a commentary by one of the maintainers of this structured metadata language developed by NCEAS and partners.
Science alone can't make the case for sustaining biodiversity, but it can show us what's at stake. An ecologist, an economist, and a conservation scientist provide new insights from synthesis research.
A new paper in PNAS highlights blind spots in environmental assessments of food and calls for full accounting of the global food system, so people, companies and policymakers can make smarter choices about sustainable consumption.
The National Science Foundation has awarded UC Santa Barbara a $4.3 million, five-year cooperative agreement to operate the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network Office through NCEAS. The LTER Network Office organizes scientific synthesis, communication, training, and education activities for the hundreds of scientists from across the Network's 28 research sites.
A first-ever global assessment, published in the journal Current Biology, shows offsetting carbon through seaweed aquaculture could be a promising tool in the toolbox to fight climate change.
How a community born of a common programming language could help science become more diverse and inclusive, and how NCEAS is part of the movement.
A new study by NCEAS researchers shows the cumulative impacts humans are having on oceans could double again in the next decade without adequate action, and actions do make a difference.
The recent surge of attention on biodiversity loss begs a big question: what sustains biodiversity? Four ecologists from the US Long-Term Ecological Research Network share some big insights from their synthesis research.
