Title: A Hurricane with a History: Hawaiian Newspapers Illuminate an 1871 Storm

Speaker: Dr. Steven Businger, Department of Atmospheric Sciences, University of Hawai‘i at Mãnoa

Abstract: This talk will provide a survey of models and algorithms that palliate this lack of exhaustive measurements in geosciences. In particular, geostatistical tools can be used to stochastically generate unmeasured data about a studied process, which ideally should be statistically indistinguishable from the truth. This is enabled by new approaches that extract training information from analogues. Some recent 1D and 2D geoscience applications will be shown, in particular the enhancement of satellite-based earth observations through a colorization procedure, the completion of gaps in hydrological time series, and the downscaling of climate simulations and digital elevation models.
