A substantial amount of research occurs in the wilds of the field. In addition to pure research, young scientists are faced with the daunting tasks of project planning and preparation, data collection and management, and often working through a large interdisciplinary field campaign.
In a short workshop at the AGU Student & Early Career Member Conference Nick van de Giesen (Delft University of Technology) and Helen Dahlke (University of California, Davis) shared their experience on fieldwork. The goals of this session are to provide an opportunity for students and early career scientists to discuss how to balance theoretical aspects of underlying science with practical considerations in the field.
