NERC 2024 Advanced Training
Meta-Analysis for Environmental Scientists
Date and venue: April 8-11, 2024 at the University of East Anglia, Norwich
This is a 4-day training course on meta-analysis for environmental sciences. The course will involve combination of lectures and practical sessions where students will be trained in methodology and practice of conducting meta-analysis using worked examples in metafor package in R. In addition, students will conduct their own mini-meta-analyses by working in small groups on an assigned environmental topic with 8-10 primary research papers provided per topic. Students would need to decide on the specific research question, effect size metric to use and inclusion criteria, design the extraction spreadsheet, extract the data from the primary studies, conduct meta-analysis using R, and present their results.
