Earth Lab science projects combine satellite, survey, and field data collected at various spatial and temporal scales to answer critical Earth Science questions and predict change using cutting-edge computational approaches.
The Earth Analytics education initiative includes a professional graduate certificate, undergrad and grad courses in Earth Analytics, an internship program and online learning materials. Earth Lab provides a rich environment for student and professional development through innovative, interdisciplinary course and curriculum design.
The Analytics Hub is a dynamic team of computer scientists, statisticians, earth scientists, and aerospace engineers, that provides tools, training, and support for data processing, analysis, and visualization to the Earth Lab team and the broader scientific community.
Earth Lab will capitalize on the data deluge from space and other platforms to accelerate science; reduce environmental risk by using these data to better understand and predict Earth System change; and train a new generation of earth analytic scientists to address outstanding Earth Science questions.
Earth Lab spring 2018 interns wrote blogs about the projects that they worked on with faculty, staff, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students. Their work at Earth Lab addresses innovative earth data science topics including: Developing machine learning approaches for using remote sensing data to assess tornado property damage , understand...
