Invitation to submit an abstract to the AGU Fall Meeting session H053 on Information Theory in the Geosciences


AGU Session Title: H053. Better Informed than Uncertain: Applications of Information Theory in the Earth Sciences Information Theory (IT) quantifies the information content, or uncertainty and changes in uncertainty, within any form of structured content, including data relevant to earth systems. IT has a broad and growing applicability within the geosciences in the contexts of […]

Library: Ben Ruddell’s 2013 Tutorial on Information Flow Dynamical Process Networks (PDF presentation)

Library, Resources

This PDF presentation provides a conceptual overview of dynamical process networks and information entropy within the context of flux towers and meteorology, and includes summaries of some of the early methods and work on this topic predating the formation of the community. Examples used are executed using the ProcessNetwork software. Studying Dynamical Process Networks with […]
