Terrestrial Monitoring and Forecasting

In the use case Terrestrial Monitoring and Forecasting, forecasts and projections of the terrestrial water and energy cycles constitute a scientific grand challenge due to the complexities involved and the socioeconomic relevance. Prominent examples include forecasts of weather, extreme events (floods, low-flows, droughts), water resources and long-term climate projections emerging as one of the major pillars in Earth system discovery including climate change research. Major Scientific Big Data Analytics (SBDA) methods encompass ensemble data assimilation technologies and genetic algorithms.

This use case is contributed by the Institute of Bio- and Geosciences - Agrosphere (IBG-3).
