About this book

Computational intelligence techniques have enjoyed growing interest in recent decades among the earth and environmental science research communities for their powerful ability to solve and understand various complex problems and develop novel approaches toward a sustainable earth. This book compiles a collection of recent developments and rigorous applications of computational intelligence in these disciplines. Techniques covered include artificial neural networks, support vector machines, fuzzy logic, decision-making algorithms, supervised and unsupervised classification algorithms, probabilistic computing, hybrid methods and morphic computing. Further topics given treatment in this volume include remote sensing, meteorology, atmospheric and oceanic modeling, climate change, environmental engineering and management, catastrophic natural hazards, air and environmental pollution and water quality. By linking computational intelligence techniques with earth and environmental science oriented problems, this book promotes synergistic activities among scientists and technicians working in areas such as data mining and machine learning. We believe that a diverse group of academics, scientists, environmentalists, meteorologists and computing experts with a common interest in computational intelligence techniques within the earth and environmental sciences will find this book to be of great value.

Reviews

“Computational Intelligence Techniques in Earth and Environmental Sciences provides a good introductory to advanced summary of computational intelligence for complex environmental problems. It provides definitions of methods and approaches, and also includes examples where they have been applied to solve complex big data problems. Readers will find that this book helps them to understand the processes involved for environmental related complex problems, which is the purpose of computational intelligence from the outset.” (Jeff Thurston, 3dvisworld.com, March, 2014)
