An Emerging Community of Science

Information is both a fundamental aspect of Nature and also of our human knowledge of Nature. This realization, combined with modern computer power and Big Data availability, has driven a resurgence of interest in the topic of Information Theory and its application in the Geo, Earth, Ecological, and Environmental Sciences.

We can use information theory to extract understanding from observatory data, to infer causality and feedback in complex dynamical systems, and to formally test our models and hypotheses. This website is a hub for the emerging community of practice for Information Theory in the Geosciences (and related disciplines).
