Applying tools for data analysis to the rapidly increasing volume of data about the Earth
An ever-increasing volume of Earth data is being gathered. These data are “big” not only in size but also in their complexity, different formats, and varied scientific disciplines. As such, big data are disrupting traditional research. New methods and platforms, such as the cloud, are tackling these new challenges.
Big Data Analytics in Earth, Atmospheric, and Ocean Sciences explores new tools for the analysis and display of the rapidly increasing volume of data about the Earth.
Volume highlights include:
