Welcome to the data driven world

 

  • University of Wisconsin geologist Shanan Peters was frustrated by how much he didn’t know. Most geological discoveries were locked away in troves of research journals so voluminous that he and his colleagues could read only a fraction of them. The sheer magnitude of existing research forced most geologists to limit the scope of their work so they could reasonably grasp what had already been done in the field. Research that received little notice when it was published too often was consigned to oblivion, wasting away in dusty journals, even if it could benefit contemporary scientists.
