YESS community Frontiers in Earth system science white paper

The Young Earth System Scientists (YESS) community describes its long-term vision and thoughts on the frontiers of Earth system science.

The YESS community has recently published a white paper ‘Earth System Science Frontiers – an ECS perspective‘ in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS), currently available as an early online release.

In the paper, an active group of young Earth system scientists describe their long-term vision of the frontiers of Earth system science, paving the way towards an integrated understanding of the Earth system. The paper is an outcome of the World Meteorological Organization-funded Early Career Researchers Workshop at the Deutscher Wetterdienst in Offenbach, Germany, in October 2015 and focuses on four frontiers: seamless Earth system prediction, communication, user-driven science, and interdisciplinarity.
