Pangeo-related events at AMS 2023

Hi Pangeo! This thread is for sharing any sessions or other events at this year’s AMS Annual Meeting that might be of interest to the Pangeo community (similar to @paigem 's thread for AGU :slight_smile: )

Feel free to add more as you see fit! This was a first cut at trying to find Pangeo-related presentations.

Looking forward to Friday!

I have a second talk that’s not listed here, happening tomorrow!

I have one too!

Were the AMS oral talks recorded and available to the public (e.g. non AMS attendees?)
I thought my search skills were decent, but I’m having trouble finding them!

Specifically I was looking for a video that showed using CMIP6 with DataTree, thinking this presentation by @jbusecke

AFAIK they are only accessible to attendees (booo!).

But this one from scipy should be very similar.

This recording from the LEAP bootcamp has more detail.

If you need something similar, also happy to make another video on this in the future!

@rsignell - usually they are posted online to the general public a few months after the conference. I found this Tweet from last year asking AMS when they would be posted, the tweet dated mid-April.

I would suspect late April/early May at the earliest. The good news is that they will be made available at some point :slight_smile:

Oh I totally did not read the OP properly. The videos I posted do not include datatree I think.

But if this is time critical please let me know!

@jbusecke , yes, I was looking for datatree w/ CMIP6 video – your AMS talk will have that, right? I can wait… I was just hoping to pass that along to some colleagues interested in working with climate data…

I believe so, yes. We should also add a second blogpost to the easy IPCC repo some time soon, which would include more use of datatree.

Thanks to this AMS Tweet, I found the "Cloud Computing for Big Data Session Recording, which included the awesome talk by @jbusecke on CMIP6/DataTree I was looking for! Highly recommended! :slight_smile:
