Oceanographic Mapping and Analysis
Global warming is a threat the world faces as a whole, while there are many facets to this problem; the most significant is the rise in ocean temperature. One of the causes of this is eutrophication, which is the explosive growth of algae in any water body. Eutrophication occurs due to excessive amounts of nutrients in the water. These nutrients are, by extension, the reason for the rise in temperature and alkalinity, and reduction of oxygen availability in ocean water. Data for various factors like phosphates, nitrates, alkalinity, oxygen levels, etc. are collected from the national oceanic and atmospheric administration. This analysis is expected to be carried out initially on RapidMiner. Before the data is analyzed, the best clustering methods will be analyzed on various metrics of performance. Then, analysis is done using clustering. Analysis will also be done using correlations between factors including nutrients. These correlations and analysis can shed insight into the trends of eutrophication in ocean water.
