Synoptic views of the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans from satellite sensors and new in situ observing technologies can be used to study climate change, the role of the ocean in the carbon cycle, and the link between ecosystem development and the physics of the mixed layer. With the growing volumes and complexity of environmental data, effective and accessible archives have become more important than ever. Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and environmental informatics activities at the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI, formerly the National Oceanographic Data Center, the National Climatic Data Center, and National Geophysical Data Center) support the scientific goals of climate, atmospheric, and oceanographic research by enabling the effort discovery and use of state-of-the-art satellite and in situ data sources of surface temperature, sea level, and many other parameters. Research opportunities exist to develop and apply Big Data, AI, and Machine Learning (ML) techniques to improve the discovery, accessibility, and use of in situ and satellite datasets in various scientific problems.
