Visualization Challenge

Visuals are a highly effective and often creative way to communicate ideas and discoveries with both the public and the broader scientific community. With this competition, EarthScope National Office aims to highlight and celebrate the most effective, stunning, and stimulating visuals conveying the work of EarthScope scientists. If you have been imagining and drafting your EarthScope results in an aesthetic form, now is the time to share!

For tips on visualizing your own science, please check out the Visualizing Science guidelines document (pdf).

This challenge was open to the entire EarthScope research community, including faculty, postdocs, and graduate and undergraduate students who use EarthScope data in their research, as well as high-school students who are working on EarthScope research.
