This workshop series is designed to help prepare the next generation of researchers and practitioners to work within, and contribute to, the data-rich era. Each workshop will bring together graduate students and senior scientists in environmental statistics and related fields to explore contemporary topics in applied environmental data modeling.
The workshop will consist of computing and modeling tutorials, presentations from graduate student participants, and several invited talks from established leaders in environmental data modeling. Tutorials and invited talks will address useful ideas and tools directly applicable to student participants' current and future research. To facilitate the exchange of information and shared learning, student talks should focus on modeling or computing challenges faced in their research.
Workshop participants will:
- Develop new modeling and computing skills through hands-on analyses and lectures lead by quantitative scientists
- Share research findings and explore open questions within and at the interface of environmental, ecological, climatic, and statistical sciences
- Learn about the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) data resources that can facilitate scientific discovery
- Climate data analytics -- Doug Nychka, Institute for Mathematics Applied to Geosciences, NCAR.
- Bayesian statistics and Monte Carlo integration strategies -- Jennifer Hoeting, Department of Statistics, Colorado State University.
- Hierarchical models for massive spatio-temporal data analysis -- Sudipto Banerjee, Division of Biostatistics, University of Minnesota. Andrew Finley, Department of Forestry, Michigan State University.
