Summer School on Information Theory in the Earth Sciences (3rd-8th June 2019)
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 to questions related to value and uncertainty associated with models, data, and forecasts.
IHCantabria (Santander, Spain) jointly with Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germamy), University of Arizona, Tucson (U.S.), University of Illinois, Urbana Campaign (US), University of Alabama, Tucaloosa (US), The interdisciplinary centre for complex system science, Lisbon, (Portugal), Aachen University (Germany), University of Colorado, Denver (US), University of British Columnbia, Vancouver (Canadá), and Northern Arizona University (US) are presenting a short course on information theory in the earth sciences with a focus on hydrology.
The course is suitable for researchers (MSc, PhD students and postdocs) and newcomers to information theory to learn about and apply concepts and methods of information theory to hydrological and earth system problems.
