SM001:
Frontier solar-terrestrial science enabled by the combination of data-driven techniques and physics-based understanding





Session ID#: 22864

Session Description:
The Sun-Earth system is complex and highly coupled. Understanding and modeling observed Sun-Earth phenomena requires the combination of systems-level (global) approaches with extensive utilization of our growing and increasingly accessible observational system. Analysis techniques from the fields of statistical inference, information theory, and machine learning coupled with emerging state-of-the-art computational techniques are enabling a new frontier in Sun-Earth system specification. This session will be a forum for novel understanding of Solar-Terrestrial relations obtained from the use of data-driven approaches and technologies. Specific emphasis will be placed on improved understanding of complexities, including multi-scale coupling, causality, nonlinearity, and the implications for space weather prediction.
