DIMACS Workshop on Geological data fusion: Tackling the statistical challenges of interpreting past environmental change

January 17 - 18, 2013
DIMACS Center, CoRE Building, Rutgers University

Presented under the auspices of the DIMACS Special Focus on Information Sharing and Dynamic Data Analysis.
Workshop Announcement

The geological records of ancient environmental changes provide crucial archives for testing models of Earth system behavior, including those used to project ongoing and future global change. Yet the archives pose many statistical challenges. The data sources are noisy, diverse, and full of gaps. The locations and ages of observations are controlled in part by natural processes. Indeed, the ages of observations are themselves known only through noisy and diverse measurement techniques.

This workshop will focus on statistical approaches to overcoming these challenges and making inferences about the Earth's past environments. It will bring together Earth scientists, statisticians, applied mathematicians and computer scientists to address these issues. Questions of interest during the workshop include:

The workshop's five thematic sessions will address:
