Shifts in marine microbial populations detected using statistical machine learning

Oceanography is currently witnessing a data explosion, with new instruments being deployed that collect high frequency, multi-parameter datasets, both remotely, with satellites, and in situ, with new instruments such as the SeaFlow cytometer. As a result, oceanographers have begun to use large-scale statistical machine learning tools to analyze these substantial datasets, thereby accelerating scientific discovery […]
