NEWS NOTES ON SUSTAINABLE WATER RESOURCES Harnessing Big Data http://www.rnrf.org/2016cong/RRJV30N4.pdf The Renewable Natural Resources Foundation is pleased to announce the release of this special edition of its journal featuring the report of the 2016 Congress on Harnessing Big Data for the Environment. The volume of data generated today – and our ability to process and analyze it – are unprecedented. Ubiquitous sensors, expansive data storage systems, and increasingly advanced computational capabilities have changed the way we generate, store, and analyze data. This new big data paradigm results in data sets that are too large and too complex to be processed by traditional applications. When supported by emerging analytical capabilities, big data represents a source for ongoing and refined discovery and analysis of social, market, and environmental trends and opportunities.
