Machine learning has been used in remote sensing to train retrieval algorithms, bias correction, code acceleration, and detection of disease in crops, among other applications. The focus is to extract information from data by computational and statistical methods. This provides a data set for computers to learn by example. In Earth science, this technology has applications in trace gases, land surface products, vegetation indices, and oceanic applications.
