The Earth System Data Science (ESDS) group embraces a wide array of highly relevant research questions via data-driven research. Example questions from our researchers are:
We assume that long-term observations encode the necessary knowledge to answer these questions in the different domains of the coupled Earth system and human activity. Hence, we mainly focus on developing methods to extract the valuable information in these data in order to confront them with models, and gain new insights.
Our team is highly interdisciplinary and culturally diverse, currently with researchers from Las Americas, Africa, Asia, and Europe:
Teaching fundamentals of Earth system sciences as well as advanced methods is also one of our key missions. All course materials available only via moodle.
