This course studies the application of data mining and related computational tools to problems in the Earth Sciences. The approach is data-centric, with attention devoted to all aspects of data management, ranging from raw data acquisition to advanced analysis and visualization. However, the use of data mining techniques is of particular interest. The course is most suitable to students in the Earth Sciences who wish to apply modern tools and techniques from computational fields such as big data, data mining, parallel processing to datasets from their research areas. Further details will be determined early in the semester based on student backgrounds and interests.
