The CyberPaleo blog disseminates updates from the LinkedEarth team and affiliates, as well as guest posts from various partners.


  • Discourse: Announcements and general discussion is done through this forum. This is also a great place to ask for help with our tools (e.g. Pyleoclim, GeoChronR, LiPD). This is the best place to start getting involved with LinkedEarth.

  • SLACK: Our Slack workspace is mainly used for hackathons. Email us for an invitation.

  • GITHUB: All technical discussion should go through GitHub. Please do so in the “issues” section of project-specific GitHub repositories (e.g. Pyleoclim repository). All of our packages follow the Open Development model. See each repository for guidelines.


We offer training opportunities through the following modalities:

  • Hackathons:

    • paleoHack, dedicated to Python tools, particularly Pyleoclim:

      • Previous hackathon materials (2021, 2022, 2023) are available through our paleoHackathon GitHub repository. The notebooks are released through myBinder and hosted on its own JupyterHub. Email us for a Hub account.

      • Future hackathons are TBD. Keep an eye on our Twitter and Discourse for updates.

    • FROGS: TBD

    • GeoChronR workshops (2016, 2017, 2021, 2022)
