Abstract

Earth analytics is an advanced, multidisciplinary course that addresses major questions in Earth science and teaches students to use the analytical tools necessary to undertake exploration of heterogeneous ‘big scientific data.’

Throughout the course you will use computationally intensive techniques to address scientific questions. You will use a suite of different types of publicly available data including:

  • Satellite and airborne lidar and spectral remote sensing data.
  • Data collected using distributed in situ (on the ground) sensor networks.
  • Social media data.
  • Demographic (census) data.

This course is highly technical. You will use the R scientific programming environment and the RStudio graphical interface to work with data.
