Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) for Earth Systems Science

Data

Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) are a powerful class of deep learning models widely applied in Earth science for image analysis, classification, and regression problems. Leveraging the Keras framework in python, CNNs can efficiently process and extract spatial features from 2D and 3D remote sensing, model output, and other Earth Systems Science (ESS) data types.
