Climate change science is one great example of how data science is assisting to make this world a better place to live. NASA’s Technical Reports Server (NTRS) have recently published a research that examines how large volumes of data may be evaluated and used to produce feasible solutions to the problem of climate change.
Climate science, according to the paper, is a big data field that is seeing unprecedented expansion. The issue is to better comprehend the consequences of these massive datasets and to establish the appropriate computational resources in order to design and deploy viable applications.
According to the paper, effective methods for releasing large-scale scientific data collections and doing scientific research based on enormous amounts of data must be made available promptly and efficiently. Data science’s role is to assist in the transformation of enormous scientific data sets into relevant scientific knowledge, allowing organizations to develop effective solutions to combat climate change.
A latest Forbes article lists a few more ways that data science is helping to solve the climate change problem. Organizations can reduce carbon emissions, for example, by installing sensors in their surroundings to track carbon pollution, using IoT sensors for monitoring energy consumption and waste, and analyzing raw, unstructured data to generate actionable intelligence in renewable energy sources like wind turbines.
