Abstract

The complexity of the Earth system has been discussed in many fundamental documents in recent years. Trying to understand the Earth system and improve our forecast capability step by step are the great challanges of the Earth system science. It is evident that only a joint effort of many scientific disciplines will make it possible to shed more light into the complexity of the Earth system. Despite enormous progress in recent years the uncertainties of predictions are still rather high. A recent analysis of the deeper reason for the limited quality of climate forecasts led to the unanimous cocnlusion that "data are still poor". Data from space will and must play a central role in Earth system research.
