About this book

This open access book invites readers to learn how to develop artificial intelligence (AI)-based algorithms to perform their research in oceanography. Various examples are exhibited to guide details of how to feed the big ocean data into the AI models to analyze and achieve optimized results. The number of scholars engaged in AI oceanography research will increase exponentially in the next decade. Therefore, this book will serve as a benchmark providing insights for scholars and graduate students interested in oceanography, computer science, and remote sensing.

About the editors

Prof. Xiaofeng Li, IEEE Fellow, graduated from Zhejiang University in 1985. Later, he received a master's and a Ph.D. in physical oceanography from the First Institute of Oceanography, China, and North Carolina State University (North Carolina State University), USA. 

From 1997 to 2019, Xiaofeng Li worked for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), mainly engaged in satellite oceanography, artificial intelligence, and big data research. Xiaofeng Li is the associated editor of IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, International Journal of Remote Sensing, and the Executive Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Remote Sensing. He is also an editorial board member of the International Journal of Digital Earth, Big Earth Data, and the Journal of Limnology and Oceanography. In addition, he has lectured nearly 100 times in more than 50 Chinese and foreign universities and scientific research institutions.

He is currently a scientist at theInstitute of Oceanology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, a Doctoral Student/Postdoctoral Supervisor, the Chief Scientist of artificial intelligence oceanography, and the Chief Engineer of the big data center.
