Abstract The capacity to collect and analyze massive amounts
of data is transforming research in the natural and social
sciences (1). And yet, the climate change adaptation
community has largely overlooked these developments.
Here, we examine how “big data” can inform adaptation
research and decision-making and outline what’s
needed from the adaptation community to maximize
this opportunity. We contend that careful application
of big data could revolutionize our understanding of
how to manage the risks of climate change.
