Climate Informatics: Some use cases and future directions for an emerging domain
X-Informatics is a discipline agnostic framework that offers a way to combine theoretical principles from the information, data, and computer sciences with techniques traditionally found in software engineering and systems development.
Climate informatics - which sits at the intersection of earth science disciplines (e.g. atmospheric, geologic, oceanographic, etc), computer science, and information science- is emerging as one of the most salient examples of using the x-informatics approach to address a grand science challenge.
This session will offer a number of use cases that are representative of a climate informatics approach, and more generally engage in a discussion about the contribution that ESIP might make to the emerging climate informatics domain.
