Research Centre for Environmental Information Science (RCEIS)
The Research Centre for Environmental Information Science (RCEIS) was established in March 2014. In the long-term vision RCEIS shall become a Sino-German competence centre and research platform for Earth systems observation and modelling by combining expertise in the fields of environmental and information sciences using modern information technology. As a scientific goal, RCEIS will develop novel concepts by using infrastructures for Earth system observation and analysis in order to better understand the evolution and dynamics of environmental systems under global change and globalization (anthropogenic pressure). An important methodology is the further development and combination of different infrastructures for Earth system observation, e.g. combining information from remote sensing (satellites and airborne) and “ground-truth” measurements. Moreover, monitoring (remote sensing and monitoring) and modelling platforms (multi-sphere/compartment, cycle-oriented) need to be combined.
