Information Theory and Applications Project

Overview

Information Theory provides the foundations of knowledge, communication, and inference, and is applied in geophysical contexts to infer process, feedback, and scale, to make use of Observatory Big Data, or to assess the performance of dynamical systems models. This ongoing project applies these ideas in hydrological, ecological, and climatological contexts. Funding has been provided by NASA  and NSF. The ProcessNetwork software is a community-developed MATLAB code that allows the calculation of information flows and the inference of process using timeseries data.
