Exploring the Earth System
We contribute to the understanding of how living organisms – including humans - exchange fundamental resources like water, carbon, nitrogen and energy with their environment, and how this affects and responds to global climate and environmental change.
|Artificial Intelligence to boost Earth system scienceFebruary 14, 2019Artificial intelligence (AI) can make a significant contribution to improving climate and Earth system models and related predictions. more|
