The Statistical Model-Data Integration-Group presents its findings at the world’s biggest conference in Earth Sciences

The SimTech research group on Statistical Model-Data Integration (SMDI) will participate in and contribute to the world’s biggest conference in Earth Sciences, the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU). The conference will take place from 11 to 15 December 2023 in San Francisco, California, and online. More than 25,000 attendees from more than 100 countries will meet to discuss recent advancements to address global challenges such as climate change. This year, the AGU’s theme is: Wide. Open. Science. It reflects the vision of sharing, inspiring, collaborating, engaging, and dedicating ourselves to wide open science.

Matching perfectly this overarching theme, Anneli Guthke will co-convene a session on “Open and Transparent Modeling Workflows for Robust and Inclusive Science”. Make sure to check out the poster presentations to get informed about new open-source tools and workflows striving for transparency, rapidity, reproducibility, and robustness in hydrosystem modelling and beyond.

Further, Anneli Guthke will give a talk on “Modified Bayesian Calibration Approaches to Tackle the Erroneous-Model Problem”, where she presents current findings of her research that make rigorous statistical approaches more applicable and useful in real-world prediction scenarios. This talk will be given in the session “Sensitivity, Uncertainty, and Testing of Earth and Environmental Models”.

In addition, the SMDI doctoral researcher Manuel Álvarez Chaves will present findings of his project “UNITE: Advancing practical applications of Information Theory by a comparison of feasible calculation approaches”. He will explore diverse methods for calculating information-theoretic quantities directly from data, thereby skipping the often-unreliable step of density estimation in high dimensions. His talk is part of the session “Extreme Variability and Complexity: Bridging Theories and Data-Driven Approaches Across Scales, from Urban Geosciences to the Geospace”.

Interested to attend? Registration for AGU23 is currently open.
