Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to Session 8863 “Big Data in Earth Science - From Hype to Reality” of the AGU 2015 Fall Meeting (Submit an Abstract to this Session<https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm15/in/papers/index.cgi?sessionid=8863>). Please see session details below.

Please note that abstracts are due by Wednesday, 5 August 2015.

Session ID: 8863
Session Title: Big Data in Earth Science – From Hype to Reality
(Submit an Abstract to this Session<https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm15/in/papers/index.cgi?sessionid=8863>)

Big Data has plausibly reached the peak of its technology “hype” cycle, at least in geosciences.  For a new technology to evolve, mature, and realize its maximum potential, it must successfully survive the transition through the ensuing "trough of disillusionment".  In a community such as ours, i.e. Earth Science, which has had a long, if not the longest, history in trying to make use and make sense out of large volumes of data, the benefits promised by Big Data appear especially enticing.  Therefore, with an aim to focus our collective efforts on the challenges and to nurture the maturation of Big Data in Earth Science, we seek abstracts in this session 1) to describe, define, or categorize Big Data challenges through illuminating science use cases, 2) to report and describe progresses/statuses in ongoing/upcoming Big Data projects, or 3) to identify opportunities for addressing the challenges and reaping benefits.

Best regards,
Session Conveners
