Using Data Mining to Make Sense of Climate ChangeExternal link

Researchers at Georgia Tech have developed a new way of mining data from climate data sets that is more self-contained than traditional tools. The methodology brings out commonalities of data sets without as much expertise from the user, allowing scientists to trust the data and get more robust — and transparent — results.
