About the project
Sparrow is a small data system for geochronology and geochemical labs. It attempts to solve two problems at the boundary between labs and the community. Sparrow provides tools for labs to manage their data and its geological context. It also provides interfaces to allow third parties (community-level data archives or Earth models, for instance) to request data directly from the labs' computer systems. These automated links free the labs to focus on their science while providing a richer set of information to the community.
Sparrow is supported by the NSF EarthCube program and driven by contributions from geochemical lab researchers at a variety of institutions.
