At this year's GSA Annual Meeting, there will be several Geoinformatics-related sessions. (View all sessions here.)
Special call for abstracts to session T47: Big Data in the Geosciences. We welcome presentations that showcase new capabilities and opportunities in big data that will allow tackling complex, multidisciplinary problems that were previously not realistic as well as transforming the “small data” science that most of us carry out daily.
Contact Leslie Hsu if you have any questions, or if you already have a talk planned for the meeting and might need an invitation to this session for a second presentation. Abstracts are due July 12 at 11:59 PDT!
T47. Big Data in the Geosciences
co-convenors: M. Lee Allison, Leslie Hsu
Big Data, including small data sets of great variety, complexity, variability, open access, is changing the scientific paradigm and breaking down barriers to discovery, access, and integration of data are reshaping the scientific practice.
