What Does a Data Geoscientist Do?

#Geoscience #DataScience

As a Data Geoscientist in Data Hub, I am responsible for maximizing the value of subsurface legacy data. Subsurface data is a key compound in the energy industry, which allows experts to explore fossil reservoirs. Many companies have vast volumes of trapped subsurface data, saved in variable data formats and stored in unstructured databases. By integrating data science tools with geoscience expertise, I am capable of updating legacy data and providing new data management strategies to improve data quality, decision-making, and new insights for ongoing and planned geoscientific investigations.
