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. A close cooperation between natural scientists and data scientists will be the next ‘game changer’ in earth sciences to both understand processes in small sub-systems of the Earth and to find answers to pressing challenges that need investigations across earth interfaces as for climate change, resource security or geo-hazards. With Digital Earth we will address these challenges within and between the Helmholtz partners, but also by including expertise from the outside and establish more international links to similar projects and long-term initiatives in Europe and globally.
