The YESS community is happy to announce that the YESS paper ‘Earth System Science Frontiers – an ECS perspective‘ has been published as an essay in the last issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS).

In the paper, an active group of young Earth system scientists describe their long-term vision of the frontiers of Earth system science, paving the way towards an integrated understanding of the Earth system. The paper is an outcome of the World Meteorological Organization-funded Early Career Researchers Workshop at the German Weather service in Offenbach, Germany, in October 2015 and focuses on four frontiers: seamless Earth system prediction, communication, user-driven science, and interdisciplinarity.


“ We believe that we can shape a truly international and sustainable research network that will complement and integrate ongoing activities in the short term and will benefit the WMO research programs in the long term by training and creating opportunities for future leaders”
