Computational Data Analytics for Analysis and Management of Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Data

Principal Investigator:
Michael A. Langston, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Tennessee
Abstract:
DOE's ARM Climate Research Facility provides observational data to improve our understanding of climate processes and their role in climate models. Operating atmospheric observatories around the world collect enormous amounts of atmospheric measurements that can help scientists and engineers study interactions of clouds and aerosols as well as their impact on the earth's energy balance. Computational resources and analytical tools facilitate the application of ARM measurements to timely science policy issues. Noise abatement and anomaly detection are major foci of this project. A variety of combinatorial, statistical and graph-theoretical techniques are employed.
Research Partner:
The lead DOE investigator for this project is Jitendra Kumar at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
