Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Link Pack: Data & Climate Change

Fighting Climate Change: The Ultimate Data Challenge from Huffington Post

“Now scientists are using data not only to monitor climate change but to help provide solutions. Combining data science with climate science may be our best hope to reduce greenhouse gasses and to survive the climate changes already under way.”

Using Data to Protect Coral Reefs from Climate Change from Northwestern University

“Coral reefs are early casualties of climate change, but not every coral reacts the same way to the stress of ocean warming. Now a Northwestern University research team is the first to provide a quantitative “global index” detailing which of the world’s coral species are most susceptible to coral bleaching and most likely to die.”

How Big Data is Helping to Tackle Climate Change from DataInformed

“These projects are built around the principle of predictive modeling. Once a working simulation of a climate change system – deforestation, overfishing, ice cap melt, or carbon emissions – has been built based on real, observed data, then by adjusting variables we can see how it might be possible to halt or even, in some cases, reverse the damage that is being done.”

Open Data Resources for Climate Change from The World Bank

“Freely available climate and climate-related data is essential to catalyze the changes in policies, investments and technologies that will be needed if we are to move towards a climate-smart future.”

Big Data Predicts Centuries Of Harm If Climate Warming Goes Unchecked from NPR

“Researchers created the first primitive models of Earth's climate back in the 1960s, on computers that used punch cards. Schmidt says there are now around 30 different groups worldwide doing climate simulations on supercomputers.”
