Collaborative + Innovative


Funded Project Highlight

How do you predict streamflow in snowmelt-dominated watersheds in the absence of field data? The ESIP Lab funded a team at Oregon State University to find out!

Find out more about their project here.

ESIP Lab GSOC Projects

Interested in what's happening with the ESIP Google Summer of Code projects? Check out their progress reports here:

 – Recurrent Neural Networks applied in the time-series classification over a high-resolution data
 – Create Environmental Science Libraries in Python using the Workflow Paradigm for HPC

Data Challenge Highlight: Pump it Up, Data Mining the Water Table
Using data from Taarifa and the Tanzanian Ministry of Water, can you predict which pumps are functional, which need some repairs, and which don't work at all?  Predict one of these three classes based on a number of variables about what kind of pump is operating, when it was installed, and how it is managed. A smart understanding of which waterpoints will fail can improve maintenance operations and ensure that clean, potable water is available to communities across Tanzania.
