The NERC DREAM (Data, Risk and Environmental Analytical Methods) Centre for 
Doctoral training on Risk and Mitigation using BIG Data is a consortium of 
Newcastle, Cranfield, Cambridge and Birmingham Universities. We will be

Newcastle university DREAM projects for 2015 have been developed by the 
Geomatics research group including:

Big data tools for massively distributed environmental hazard data lakes 
(Stuart Barr<mailto:stuart.barr@newcastle.ac.uk>)

High-dimensional multi-objective spatial risk and sustainability optimisation 
tools using cloud-enabled evolutionary computing (Stuart 
Barr<mailto:stuart.barr@newcastle.ac.uk>)

Urban data processing workflows in the cloud underpinning risk analysis in 
cities (Phil James<mailto:phil.james@newcastle.ac.uk>)

Satellite radar observations for rapidly responding large earthquakes (Zhenhong
