In July's Scientist's Challenge, Kate Allstadt and Brennah McVey from the Landslide and Earthquake Hazards Programs present their challenge of making a diverse database accessible!

In this cross-disciplinary research, seismic wave data is applied to processes besides earthquakes, like landslides, debris flows, and floods. But what is the best way to catalog these diverse data types for efficient discovery and analysis?

There are many ways you can contribute to this challenge: suggest ideas or recommendations directly as a comment to this forum (you must be logged in), email Kate or Brennah directly at and, or email and the CDI coordinators will pass on the information.
