This is an excerpt from the content

In recent years, the amount of environmental data that is measured, collected and analysed has risen in staggering amounts. The reason for this is largely the desire and need of both science and politics to better understand the reasons, effects and possible consequences of climate change. This includes topics as diverse as the behaviour of groundwater regimes in arid regions, the migration of animal species, or the wide range of ecosystem services. In addition, this trend is reinforced by observation methods getting more and more refined: satellites can measure data in the sub-metre range, eddy covariance systems analyse high-frequency atmospheric data such as wind, heat or gas fluxes and weather surveillance radar creates high-resolution data of precipitation parameters every few minutes, to name just a few examples.
