Workshop Description:

This purpose of this workshop is to present state-of-the-art research on knowledge discovery in Earth system science data, from models and measurements, as they relate to climate change impacts, mitigation strategies, climate services, and related feedbacks and responses of natural and human systems. The workshop covers both data mining methodologies and applications to Earth and environment science. Encouraged are original research papers describing applications of statistical and data mining methods that support analysis and discovery in climate predictability, attributions, weather extremes, water resources management, risk analysis and hazards assessment, ecosystem sustainability, infrastructure resilience, and geo-engineering.

This workshop combines contributions from the Ninth Workshop on Data Mining in Earth System Science (DMESS 2019) and the Workshop on Data Mining in Climate change Impact, mitigation and Human behavior (DMCIH 2019) into a single half-day session focused on addressing climate, environment, and Earth science methods and applications of data mining.
