Building the data capabilities and products needed to help enable understanding of watershed dynamics, tropical forests, carbon flux, and soil carbon. are just a few of the areas where we are working. This talk will describe the role inter-disciplinary data science is playing in helping to address these challenges. Many challenges encountered are not addressed by the tools available today.

The Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science, co-hosted by the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS) and the Berkeley Division of Data Sciences, features Berkeley faculty doing visionary research that illustrates the character of the ongoing data revolution.  This lecture series is offered to engage our diverse campus community and enrich active connections among colleagues.  All campus community members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Arrive at 3:30 PM for light refreshments and discussion prior to the formal presentation.
