Episode 136: The hidden stories data tell

Joe Dellinger discusses his 2022 Distinguished Instructor Short Course, "Forensic data processing." The goal of Joe's course - and this conversation - is to get you thinking more critically about your data. How was it recorded? What is in it? What happened to it on the way from the field to numbers in a file? Joe brings his experience, expertise, wisdom, and humor to this essential conversation on data that will be valuable for every geophysicist. Start the new year with the fresh insights presented in this episode.
