Geosciences: The Future

The past few decades have seen an explosion in quantitative geoscience. Our observational systems now produce data streams at temporal and spatial resolution unprecedented in human history. The computational tools available for interpretation and prediction dwarf the state-of-the-art of merely 10 years ago. Where can we go from here? The IUGG Working Group of young scientists nominated by the IUGG Associations addressed this question. The group presented its view on the issues, challenges and opportunities of the geosciences in the years to come. A written report from the group is available here.
