Contributing to Climate Research?

As a chemist/biologist, my day-to-day work is not really related to climate research. Yet, the effects of the crisis are, of course. I have been pondering how I could contribute my small bits. And after some weeks, I realized that I could repurpose the Zika Corpus idea developed by Daniel Mietchen. And, of course, then there is our Scholia project, where annotation of research articles are visualized. So, given that the climate crisis is a truly global problem, I continued what others had started before me: annotating climate research articles with the region or location they are associated with. That way, you can look up the effects of the climate crisis in your own region.

Mind you, most literature is not annotated with main subject yet, let alone country. But that's at least something I can do (along with taking the train as often as possible, to replace the airplane). And you can join: here's the list of climate change articles without (additional) subject annotation. Another interesting annotation you can do: species.

Europe




Africa (part of it; it's a huge continent!)



U.S.A.
