Analysis Tools for Large Datasets and their Application in Hydrology

Session ID#: 23011

Session Description:
Large collaborative field experiments are critical to collecting the extensive datasets needed to address the questions facing the scientific community. These datasets typically consist of diverse measurements collected across a continuum of spatial and temporal scales using both in-situ and remote sensing-based approaches. Because it can be difficult to apply traditional computational and analysis techniques to these datasets, new approaches are needed to visualize, explore, and analyze these massive datasets. This session focuses on both the development of effective analysis tools and their application to the hydrological and related sciences. Examples of these tools include novel data sampling and statistical methods, data fusion and integration techniques, data mining approaches, and visualization schemes for large datasets. Potential applications of these tools include, but are not limited to, modeling evapotranspiration and other earth system processes, assessing flood and drought risk, characterizing the spatial variability of precipitation, and water resources management.
