YESS Publications

YESS aims to bring together early career scientists to give them an opportunity to share ideas and visions on Earth system science topics, challenges for early career scientists and to develop these shared thoughts into papers – crossing countries, regions and disciplines.

In the recent years the following papers in scientific peer reviewed journals have been published through collaborations that YESS facilitated and/or was actively involved:
