Geoscience Jargon Wiki Edit-a-thon: Updating geoscience terms in Wikipedia

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants in the “Getting Past Jargon” session at the winter 2017 ESIP meeting identified close to 100 terms (https://goo.gl/gO31sP ) that could be considered problematic within Earth science domains. Help us bridge these gaps in understanding! Join us for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries related to these terms. We will give participants some background on how to do this, and hope that this will lead to better understanding of “Geoscience Jargon” within and outside the Earth science community.

Please bring a wifi enabled laptop to the session. We also encourage interested attendees to create a Wikipedia account (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:CreateAccount&returnto=Main+Page ) in advance of arriving in Bloomington, as there is a limit to new editors per IP address per 24 hours.
