Understanding Global Change: Opportunities and Challenges for Data Driven Research

Tuesday, December 1, 2015 - 1:25pm - 2:25pm
Lind 305
Vipin Kumar (University of Minnesota, Twin Cities)
This talk will present an overview of research being done in a large interdisciplinary project on the development of novel data driven approaches that take advantage of the wealth of climate and ecosystem data now available from satellite and ground-based sensors, the observational record for atmospheric, oceanic, and terrestrial processes, and physics-based climate model simulations. These information-rich datasets offer huge potential for monitoring, understanding, and predicting the behavior of the Earth's ecosystem and for advancing the science of global change. This talk will discuss some of the challenges in analyzing such data sets and our early research results. Research funded by the NSF Expeditions in Computing Program and NASA.
