A Use Case of Big Data

Dong, LingLing; Frearson, Nicholas P.

Modern science significantly depends on data and data technologies to quantitatively describe the objects under research. In our polar research, we employ a sophisticated set of instruments to study the ice-sheets. The data we collect and process comes to more than 100 TB a year across several physically distinct campaigns. This can be defined as big data. The technologies we apply through the phases of data collection, analysis, visualization, modelling, publication, and archiving invoke some new big-data machinery that we would like to share and discuss with other colleagues in different fields.
