Earth System Research Partnership

Marotzke, Jochem; Andreae, Meinrat; Heimann, Martin
Earth system research is the science of global change, whether caused naturally or by humans. Earth system research requires the amalgamation of previously unrelated scientific disciplines and the appreciation of the Earth as a system of interacting compartments. In-situ measurements, satellite remote sensing, and numerical modelling are the pillars of Earth system research and have advanced dramatically in recent years. The Earth System Research Partnership is the association of the Max Planck Institutes dedicated to Earth system research, with further contributions by several Max Planck and other institutes.
