OD001:
Big Data for a Big Ocean: Progress on Tools, Technology, and Services


Session ID#: 28354

Session Description:
Four years ago, oceanographers and data management specialists gathered at the 2014 Ocean Sciences meeting to discuss our community’s emerging and novel approaches to the Big Data challenges presented by ocean data’s growing complexity and volume. For the 2018 Ocean Sciences meeting, the community is invited to return to these discussions and mark progress on the Big data tools, technologies, and services to collect, store, preserve, process, discover, access, visualize, and analyze big ocean data. Submissions that look forward to emerging problems and their solutions are also requested, as well as lessons-learned from attempts to leverage those new technologies and services. Contributions are encouraged from across the academic, commercial, and government sectors to foster partnerships and innovations to solve these big ocean data challenges and enable a new generation of ocean science and applications.
