Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The PRISM Cooperative Institute was jointly established by Cornell University and nine other institutions (see: sites.google.com/view/prism-prj) including Columbia University as part of the NSF funded Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR) Big Idea activity. The natural-human world is characterized by highly interconnected systems, in which a single discipline is not equipped to identify broader signs of systemic risk and mitigation targets. In particular, what risks in agriculture, ecology, energy, finance and hydrology are heightened by climate variability and change? Recent advances in computing and data science, and the data revolution in each of these domains have now provided a means to address these questions.
