Abstract

As spatio-temporal data have become ubiquitous, an increasing challenge facing computer scientists is that of identifying discrete patterns in continuous spatio-temporal fields. In this paper, we introduce a parameter-free pattern mining application that is able to identify dynamic anomalies in ocean data, known as ocean eddies. Despite ocean eddy monitoring being an active field of research, we provide one of the first quantitative analyses of the performance of the most used monitoring algorithms. We present an incomplete information validation technique, that uses the performance of two methods to construct an imperfect ground truth to test the significance of patterns discovered as well as the relative performance of pattern mining algorithms. These methods, in addition to the validation schemes discussed provide researchers new directions in analyzing large unlabeled climate datasets.
