Panel: Using ocean and environmental data to address socio-economic challenges
8 June, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am EDT
Panel discussion organized by The Oceanography Society (TOS)
Panelists: Payal Parekh, James Watson
Synopsis: Since the later part of the 20th century, advances in technology have made it feasible to acquire, store and process several terabytes of complex data. A data-driven approach to Oceanography and Environmental Science has been critical to better understand Earth’s climate and in identifying and isolating anthropogenic changes in the environment. During the last decade, data analytics has also been employed to address the socio-economic challenges that humanity faces, however, much remains to be explored in this domain. We will hear from Payal Parekh and James Watson, two oceanographers by training, who work with data in inspired ways to address the world’s biggest socio-economic challenges.
