Summary: 2016 Schneefernerhaus Workshop “First Workshop on Information Theory and the Earth Sciences”

News / Sunday, April 24th, 2016

During the last week of April 2016 (24-27), an international group of 29 Earth Scientists convened at the beautiful “Schneefernerhaus” research center at the summit of the Zugspitze, the highest place in Germany, to discuss the growing role of Information Theoretic concepts in scientific investigations related to EES. The remote location provided the perfect opportunity for lengthy discussions, and also for an energetic and hard-fought foosball/kicker Tournament that was, perhaps not unexpectedly, won by members of the German contingent.
