Towards SMART Monitoring and Integrated Data Exploration of the Earth System - Implementing the Data Science Paradigm


Significant advances in Earth system understanding will only be achieved through better integration of data and knowledge from the different Earth science disciplines and Earth compartments. Improvement in this field strongly depends on our capabilities of dealing with fast growing multi-parameter data and on our effort employing Data Science methods, adapting new algorithms and developing digital workflows tailored to specific scientific needs.

Digital Earth has been strategically initiated by all eight centres of the Helmholtz research field Earth and Environment.
