Datawatch: How analytics is helping us to explore earth’s final frontier

As deep as 11km in some places and covering more than 70% of the globe, the ocean is often called Earth’s final frontier: a vast, unexplored expanse full of unknowns and an environment that has huge repercussions on the rest of the planet.

The Mariana Trench, the deepest known point in our sea floor, is big enough to contain Mount Everest with a mile or so to spare. So it should come as no surprise that exploring these environments poses significant challenges. And that’s before you consider the impenetrable dark, the plunging temperatures, and huge hydrostatic pressure.
