 Digital twins of Earth and the computing challenge of human interaction

(Nature Computational Science. Vol 4, Nr. 1, pages 154-157, Mar. 2024)

Publisher Reference


Digital twins of Earth have the capability to offer versatile access to detailed information on our changing world, helping societies to adapt to climate change and to manage the effects of local impacts, globally. Nevertheless, human interaction with digital twins requires advances in computational science, particularly where complex geophysical data is turned into information to support decision making.
