On May 4th and 5th, 2022, the Delta-X Science Team developed and conducted a Delta-X Applications Workshop which was held virtually and in person at The Estuary at the Water Campus Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In this two-day workshop, the scientists covered an introduction to Delta-X datasets and steps for analyzing field, airborne, and modeling datasets. Scientists presented material in the form of lecture presentation, hands-on data access demonstrations, and data analysis methods tutorials mostly in the form of Jupyter Notebook content. The Delta-X Science Team has provided videos of presentations, slide content, and Notebook material. That material is organized and available from the ORNL DAAC from the Workshop Content repository link below. The ORNL DAAC archives and distributes datasets from the Delta-X EVS-3 Mission. Read more about the mission at the Delta-X website.

[Delta-X Logo] The Delta-X mission is a 5-year NASA Earth Venture Suborbital-3 mission to study the Mississippi River Delta in the United States, which is growing and sinking in different areas. River deltas and their wetlands are drowning as a result of sea level rise and reduced sediment inputs. The Delta-X mission will determine which parts will survive and continue to grow, and which parts will be lost. Delta-X begins with airborne and in situ data acquisition and carries through data analysis, model integration, and validation to predict the extent and spatial patterns of future deltaic land loss or gain.
