Data Science for Earth, Space and Environmental Sciences

This action (WP1) will exploit the huge potential of applying modern data analytics in ESES. It will overcome disciplinary and technical barriers and provide new statistical and computational approaches, in particular for data in astrophysics to better characterize exoplanets, in oceanography to better infer vertical exchange in the ocean, and in ecology to reconstruct interaction networks between species.
