Environmental Data Analytics using R May 2023 Batch
Environmental Analytics offers a rich tapestry of techniques for deeper understanding and management of complex natural environment. The studies on different facets and processes of environment are increasingly data rich with the great need of applying various advanced techniques to uncover and extract hidden meaningful pattern that could be of assistance in sustainable environmental management.
The course aims to provide basic understanding of statistics and machine learning approaches with extensive hands-on training to analyse environmental data using R programming language.
The 5‑day certificate course will help participants to learn the essentials of environmental analytics. It will also give an opportunity to learn about various applications of statistical approaches including machine learning algorithms in the field of environmental and climate science.
With extensive hands-on training using R, participants will learn about different insights one can extract from the data.
Towards the end, participants will have the opportunity to present and discuss the utility of environmental analytics in their own work.
The course is intended to be delivered through lecture and hands-on sessions. The theory will assist in enhancing the knowledge of the basics of data analytics and the rationale for applying different approaches to a particular dataset and for a goal, while a hands-on tutorial will give exposure to how to use the technology.
On successful completion of the course, participants will:
Get familiar with R programming language
Perform environmental data analysis using R
Apply various algorithms for extracting information from environmental datasets
Visualise datasets and outputs in R
Participants from NGOs, academicians, early career researchers and PhD scholars working in the field of environmental science and allied sectors with basic knowledge of statistics
The course will be offered from May 22 – 26. The five-day training is divided into lectures for conceptual understanding of data analytics and hands-on sessions in R for processing data.
It will end with the final presentation from participants about the utility of data analytics in their work and in the project they would be working on during the workshop.
All interested participants need to fill the application form. All the participants are required to submit their specific interest in joining the certificate programme.
