This was the last day in the summer program held by UTokyo.
They learned the importance of big data the last day. This day’s main topic was to learn how to use big data by themselves.
In the morning, Dr. Petra demonstrated the DIAS Tool handling the big data of the CMIP5 (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5) output and the methodology of model selection and bias correction of precipitation data. Participants were having trouble with downloading data and some of the staff helped them handling their problems.
After lunch was the time for hands-on and group work, i.e. participants got the bias corrected data of the selected models for the target area for past and future analysis periods and then analyzed precipitation data of the past and the future using GIS skills for preparing the output.
