Geodynamic data post-processing
A MATLAB-based software package for geodynamic diagnostics and scientific visualisation. You can find find more information on: Crameri, F. (2017), StagLab, Zenodo. http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1199037
The accurate use of colour in data visualisation is essential in science communication. However, colour maps that visually distort data remain common. These include, but are not limited to, the rainbow (or jet) colour map. Such unscientific colour maps distort, hide, and falsify the underlying data, and often make a figure unreadable to colour-blind readers (support the #endrainbow movement!). Instead, I try to use scientific colour maps, (e.g. Scientific colour maps 6.0.4 or the Cmasher package for python), which are perceptually uniform and ordered, readable as B&W print and colour-vision-deficiency friendly.
EGU Geodynamics division
Studies related to the Geodynamics Division include all aspects of geodynamic processes in the lithosphere, mantle, and core. The EGU GD media output is run by an enthusiastic group of early career scientists. Find weekly blog posts on the blog website, and follow EGU GD on Facebook and twitter for a healthy dose of geodynamic research, news, and fun!
EGU Early Career Scientists committee
Early Career Scientists (ECS) representatives are the vital link between the Union and its early career scientists membership. They give a voice to early career researchers in the Earth, planetary, and space sciences and ensure their needs are met at the Assembly, and throughout the year. Interested in becoming involved for the GD Division? Let me know!
AGU scientific section of Studies of the Earth’s Deep Interior is dedicated to understanding the internal structure of the Earth (and other bodies) at depths inaccessible by direct sampling.
Women in Science/STEM
500 Women Scientists
Having role models and safe networking opportunities is crucial in an academic career. However, lack of female role models persist in the STEM fields. That is why I joined the 500 Women Scientists network, which is all about enhancing opportunities for women in science and engineering. In particular, I’m following events of the Zurich pod of 500 Women Scientists.
Did This Really Happen?
Did this really happen?! (DTRH) is a project dedicated to fighting everyday sexism in the scientific community, one comic strip at a time. Through didthisreallyhappen.net, comics are published that show everyday sexism in academia.
Fix the Leaky Pipeline
The Fix the Leaky Pipeline programme offers young female scientists (doctoral students, postdocs and other young scientists) the opportunity to reflect on their professional situations, to develop a strategy for embarking on or continuing their career paths, to receive targeted further training, and to extend their personal and scientific networks.
GAIA, network for women in Earth sciences
GAIA provides women with an Earth science background, career or interest with the opportunity to meet and network and intents to support these women in their (career) development.
