The Earth System project is building a data warehouse for greater understanding of Earth as a single complex system.

A new data warehouse has been created at the University of West Hungary to combine Earth data on physical, chemical and biological processes. The Earth System project aims to combine different areas of study for a better understanding of Earth as a single complex system.

“The exploration of the Earth as a system and the consequent inherent complex relationships has received a massive boost from recent technological advances,” said Sándor Soós, the project manager. “However, the advanced analytics are limited when research data from different fields are stored separately.”

The Earth System project combines data from several different disciplines into a single source for greater analytical insight. Four institutes combined research information to create the data warehouse. Included are environment, forestry and geophysical data in various forms that can be analyzed through a single interface.

Overall, the project aims to raise greater awareness of Earth system science in wider sections of society, with interesting applications that engage young people for greater understanding of our world. The portal also hopes to lend more insight into climate change impacts from broader cross-disciplinary monitoring.
