GC006:
Applications of machine learning and novel statistical approaches to the study of weather and climate using large datasets





Session ID#: 22634

Session Description:
The increasing volume of climate data from observations, analysis products, and climate model output presents the climate science community with unprecedented data analysis challenges and opportunities. This challenge becomes greater when targeting extreme events as standard data reduction techniques like multi-model ensemble averaging reduce the magnitude of extremes. To address this, several sophisticated statistical and machine learning algorithms have been developed and applied to distill critical information from this growing trove of climate data. This session invites speakers that develop and/or apply machine learning or related novel statistical techniques to mine climate data for the study of climate projection, climate/weather extreme events, and more.
