Dr. Danita Brandt Presents the latest "Cool Tool" for Geoscience

  • Apr 21, 2017

Come see the latest in the Geoscientist's tool kit. Dr. Danita Brandt presents "Cool Tool:  Charting the Geosciences via Google Books Ngram Viewer" Bibliographic trends in word choice can be used to chart the evolution of a discipline, from the first recorded use of its name, through fluctuations in the use of the name, to its current standing, as measured by bibliographic frequency.  Ngram Viewer, a tool developed by a team at Google, puts this data at our fingertips.  Bring your laptop and play along! Join us on April 21, 2017 from 12:30 to 1:30 in Room 204, Natural Science Building, on the East Lansing campus.
