ERBE Digitization for NASA LaRC
IT Project Management, Natural Language Processing, Web Development
This project focused on the long-term preservation of ERBE’s pre-digital narrative materials. Formal and informal documentation, papers, scientists’ notes and other materials were digitized, optimized as PDFs accessible to search engines and populated with metadata through natural language processing and topic modeling. I also used a PDF stamping tool to watermark the PDFs with identification information drawn from the metadata.

The Earth’s radiation budget, one of the principal drivers of the Earth’s weather patterns, represents the balance between incoming energy from the Sun and outgoing thermal (longwave) and reflected (shortwave) energy from the Earth.
