The Senate Commission on Earth System Research, which consisted of 17 researchers, advised the DFG’s statutory bodies on all issues relating to cross-disciplinary Earth system research, for example on topics such as Earth system modelling or approaches to handling large, heterogeneous amounts of data. In addition, it advised the DFG bodies on the research infrastructures required for Earth system research, such as the modernisation of research vessels and aircraft and their ongoing adaptation to the needs of the scientific community.
The Senate Commission ended on 30 September 2023.
