From observation to prediction in terrestrial systems
Climate and land use change are key factors influencing the terrestrial hydrological system which need to be managed by society in the coming decades. These changes act and provoke system reactions on different spatial and temporal scales, which result in immense challenges for environmental and hydrological research. Terrestrial environmental research has to tackle these challenges.
New approaches are needed to detect complex interaction and feedback mechanisms between the various compartments of the terrestrial system and to identify long-term trends in observed states and fluxes. Therefore, the development and implementation of large-scale, long-term, and integrated environmental research infrastructures has become more and more important during the last years across all scientific disciplines.
