Data Analysis and Statistics in EaES
We in the geosciences are feeling the effects of our society’s digital revolution. In the last couple of decades, our ability to acquire long-term, continuous, and high-frequency environmental measurements – even in remote locations – has improved radically. These awesome technological advances resolve old problems of data scarcity, but other old problems of knowing how to analyze and interpret data remains, and new problems of how to store, visualize, and manage big data have emerged. I think this means we need to learn to be more proficient data scientists. I’m still learning every day about how best to do this, but it’s been a pretty fun ride so far. I hope you’ll consider joining it!
