Los Alamos National Laboratory is looking for community partner organizations to participate in the third annual Northern New Mexico Community Data Sprint this summer. This week-long event gives organizations the chance to solve their data-related problems by collaborating with a small team of LANL data scientists.
There is no charge for organizations to participate, however they should have their own data, a related question or problem they would like to answer or solve, and at least one representative willing to participate. The Data Sprint is part of LANL’s Community Technical Assistance program, and is sponsored by Laboratory’s Information Science & Technology Institute and Community Partnerships Office.
Interested organizations should visit the Data Sprint website for eligibility and more information and consider attending an information session on Feb. 7 to learn more. The application deadline is Feb. 22, 2023.
Laboratory and NMSU team up to research migratory bird die-off
New Mexico State University and Los Alamos National Laboratory are establishing a joint research program on bird die-off, two years after New Mexico saw migratory birds literally falling from the sky.
The two institutions, together with the U.S. Geological Survey and other agencies, will recruit and train 24 students to examine how a changing climate is impacting migratory birds and leading to a die-off like one seen in the fall of 2020.
A $250,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture combined with other funding sources will cover the cost of the four-year program.
