What did you do?
Earth system scientists increasingly use online data repositories to store, synthesize, and perform meta-analyses of e.g. forest growth, plant characteristics, and land-atmosphere energy fluxes (see for example Ameriflux). No such database exists for continuous soil respiration, the land-to-atmosphere CO2 flux measured continuously by automated systems around the world, however. This is the gap my nascent
cosore package aims to fill.
drake provides the infrastructure for tracking out-of-date soil respiration datasets contributed by authors; efficiently rebuilding them into a single, standardized form; and verifying reproducibility.
