You are invited to attend the Workshop (and Summer School) on Information Theory in the Earth Sciences (SITES 2020, August 2-6, 2020, Flagstaff, Arizona, USA). Information theory provides a powerful conceptual framework for learning, model building, and prediction in the Earth sciences. It extends probability theory in certain important ways that make it particularly applicable […]

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 […]
