NFDI Consortium Earth System Sciences

NFDI4Earth addresses digital needs of Earth System Sciences. Earth System scientists cooperate in international and interdisciplinary networks with the overarching aim to understand the functioning and interactions within the Earth system and address the multiple challenges of global change. NFDI4Earth is a community-driven process providing researchers with FAIR, coherent, and open access to all relevant Earth System data, to innovative research data management and data science methods.

NFDI4Earth task areas and related measures

The major interactions of the NFDI4Earth task areas that we will implement: NFDI Commons and international embedding provide the framing for the task areas interactions. Since a well-defined joined architecture of NFDI4Earth does not exist yet, a core community effort will be to synthesize such a common framework on the basis of existing contributions from the participants, and at the same time coordinate the necessary adaptation steps towards an interoperable functioning (2Interoperate). Coordination and central support services form the foundation of the NFDI4Earth community effort (2Coordinate). On this support layer, all other task areas will build their services and offerings. It will support different implementation needs and will e.g. secure a reliable offer of virtual environments, ticket services and education platforms. This includes the OneStop4All and the USN (both in 2Facilitate) that facilitate the provision of RDM support. Establishing and maintaining all pathways (and more) is a key element of building the NFDI4Earth.

Major interactions between the NFDI4Earth task areas – their embedding via NFDI Commons and international networks is indicated by grey boxes.
