OD34B:
Data Science for Modern Oceanography: Statistics, Machine Learning, Visualization, and More III Posters

Session ID#: 85203

Session Description:
Oceanographic research in today's world increasingly relies on analyzing multiple datasets, including ship-based measurements, profiles from autonomous instruments such as floats and gliders, satellite remote sensing data, as well as output from models and state estimates. These datasets are growing larger and more complex every day, and future advances in ocean observing and modeling will add significantly to the quantity and variety of "Big Data" across all disciplines of oceanography. Innovative statistical methods, computational techniques, and data visualizations will be needed in the coming decades to distill these data and to extract maximum scientific understanding. New developments in statistics and data science have the potential to transform our knowledge of the ocean across many spatial and temporal scales and can help address various emerging challenges in oceanographic data analysis. This session solicits studies on using the latest techniques from statistics, machine learning, and visualization to analyze datasets in oceanography and related areas of climate science, both those currently existing as well as those that will be available in the near future. Presentation topics may include computational methods for large datasets; software platforms and tools; model diagnostics, validation, and parameterization; spatio-temporal interpolation; uncertainty quantification; classification and regression techniques; pattern recognition; as well as other advanced data science topics.
