Earth System Knowledge Platform

ESKP (Earth System Knowledge Platform) is the knowledge platform of the Research Field Earth and Environment of the Helmholtz Association.
Die Website vermittelt anschaulich Wissen zu den zentralen Themen Naturgefahren, Klimawandel, Schadstoffe und Auswirkungen der Energiewende auf die Umwelt in Form von wissenschaftlichen Artikeln, Interviews, Video-Clips, Science-GIFs, Infografiken und mehr.

The website vividly conveys knowledge on the central topics of natural hazards, climate change, pollutants and the effects of the energy turnaround on the environment in the form of scientific articles, interviews, video clips, science GIFs, information graphics and more.
ESKP processes research findings for society. The range of expertise in the Research Area Earth and Environment allows complex topics to be examined from different perspectives and to be presented as a whole, in particular via the format of the “Themenspezial” (currently only in German). The contributions also point out open questions as an impulse back into the science community and provide action options. The aim is to improve the basis for decision-making in politics and society.
The platform is supported by eight Helmholtz Centres:

  • AWI: Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research
  • DLR: German Aerospace Center
  • FZJ: Forschungszentrum Jülich
  • GEOMAR: GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel
  • GFZ: Helmholtz Centre Potsdam – German Research Centre for Geosciences
  • HZG: Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht, Centre for Materials and Coastal Research
  • KIT: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
  • UFZ: Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research

Koordiniert wird die Plattform am Helmholtz-Zentrum Potsdam, Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum.
