“Knowledge discovery from temporal, spatial and spatio-temporal data is pivotal for understanding and predicting the behavior of Earth’s ecosystem model. An important influence leaving its impact on the ecosystem is the global climate system. In this paper, the Earth Science data that we have analyzed consists of daily global air temperature and precipitation measurements, aggregated from heterogeneous sensors for fifty years (1950–1999). The enormous amount of data that is available for analysis requires employment of data mining techniques for discovering interesting patterns, detecting significant changes and extracting meaningful insights from the data. Our work considers the problem of detecting anomalous (abnormal or unexpected) behavior in the global climate system, discovering teleconnection patterns and providing consequential insights to the analysts.”
