This resource collects teaching materials that are originally created for the in-person course 'GEOSC/GEOG 497 – Data Mining in Environmental Sciences' at Penn State University (co-taught by Tao Wen, Susan Brantley, and Alan Taylor) and then refined/revised by Tao Wen to be used in the online teaching module 'Data Science in Earth and Environmental Sciences' hosted on the NSF-sponsored HydroLearn platform.

This resource includes both R Notebooks and Python Jupyter Notebooks to teach the basics of R and Python coding, data analysis and data visualization, as well as building machine learning models in both programming languages by using authentic research data and questions. All of these R/Python scripts can be executed either on the CUAHSI JupyterHub or on your local machine.
