Overview

Welcome to the Climate Knowledge Discovery community project page

One of the largest repositories of scientific data in any discipline is the model-generated and observational geoscience data produced and used in climate science. The data volumes from climate modeling will continue to increase dramatically, and the interpretation of this data requires new approaches - we are entering the age of data-intensive science. Future climate data analysis requires a suite of new techniques interpreting and linking phenomena on and between different time- and length scales as well as realms and processes. Such tools could provide unique insights into challenging features of the Earth system, including extreme events, nonlinear dynamics and chaotic regimes.

Climate Knowledge Discovery is an emerging community effort to find these new tools. Successful applications of Complex Network algorithms to climate datasets have already provided first insights into the potential of such an approach. Further fields of expertise need to be included, for example techniques of the Semantic Web and knowledge discovery algorithms, resulting in a highly multidisciplinary field of scientific research.
