NP2.4Complex networks and data-driven knowledge discovery in climate and geosciences
|Convener: Reik Donner | Co-Conveners: Karsten Steinhaeuser , Jonathan Donges|
Present-day, concepts and techniques from network theory are frequently used to study structures and dynamics of complex systems in various scientific disciplines. Meanwhile, applications cover different fields of geosciences, from hydrology and geomorphology (e.g., scaling of and sediment transport along river networks, spatial structure and interaction of sediment pathways in cascading systems) over climatology to seismology (earthquake networks, volcanic eruptions) and natural hazard research (disaster spreading, causality networks).
This session will collect contributions from researchers working on data analysis and conceptual modelling in different geoscientific disciplines and bring them together to discuss and exchange knowledge about the current state of complex network approaches in their specific fields.
