Synopsis

Die Erde ist ein aussergewohnlicher Planet. Und seine Geheimnisse sind noch keineswegs entschlusselt. Lernen Sie das System Erde mit diesem Buch besser kennen und erfahren Sie, wie Geowissenschaftler heute die Strukturen, Prozesse und Wechselwirkungen unseres Heimatplaneten erforschen und zu welch uberraschenden Entdeckungen sie dabei immer wieder kommen. Earth is an exceptional planet. And by no means have all its secrets been deciphered yet. With this book, you are invited to gain a better knowledge of System Earth, and you will learn how today's geoscientists examine the structures, processes and interactions of our home planet and what surprising discoveries they often make. Einen Planeten wie die Erde gibt es im All nach unserem heutigen Wissen kein zweites Mal. Unser Heimatplanet erweist sich bei naherer Betrachtung als ein einzigartiges System von Beziehungen und Wechselwirkungen zwischen den grossen Teilsystemen Geosphare, Atmosphare, Hydrosphare, Kryosphare und Biosphare. Deren uberraschend fein abgestimmtes Zusammenspiel konnte Leben - einschliesslich des Menschen - hervorbringen, das seinerseits wiederum die Teilsysteme modifiziert.

Im Zuge der Erforschung dieses hochkomplexen Systems haben sich die Geowissenschaften in den letzten Jahrzehnten stark gewandelt. Ihre einzelnen Fachdisziplinen verstehen sich heute auch als Teilkomponenten einer systemischen Betrachtung. Und Themen wie Klimawandel und Ressourcenverknappung zeigen, dass moderne Geoforschung nicht nur faszinierend, sondern fur den Menschen, der die Erde als Lebens- und Gestaltungsraum nutzt, unverzichtbar ist. Dabei haben wir noch viel zu entdecken. Die Erkundung der Erde - sei es an deren direkt zuganglicher Oberflache oder im tiefen Untergrund, sei es im Labor oder bei der Beobachtung aus dem Weltraum - bringt standig neue, erstaunliche Einsichten hervor. Aber es geht um mehr als packende Wissenschaft: Ohne geowissenschaftliche Forschung, die heute ein global vernetztes Unterfangen ist, sind Antworten auf die Herausforderungen einer standig wachsenden Weltbevolkerung und einer zunehmenden Inanspruchnahme der naturlichen Lebensgrundlagen nicht zu finden. Grosse Forschungseinrichtungen wie das Deutsche GeoForschungsZentrum GFZ in Potsdam leisten hierfur bedeutende Beitrage.

GFZ-Mitarbeiter gewahren in diesem ebenso spannend wie verstandlich geschriebenen Buch faszinierende Einblicke in ihre Arbeit - eine Arbeit, die dem besseren Verstandnis des Systems Erde dient und die Grundlagen fur ein moglichst umfassendes Erdsystemmanagement liefert. As far as we know, there is no other planet like Earth in the universe. At closer inspection our home planet reveals itself as a unique system of relationships and interactions of the major subsystems, the geosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, and biosphere. Their surprisingly fine-tuned interactions were capable to bring forth life, including the evolution of humans, and life in turn modifies the subsystems yet again. In researching this highly complex system, the Earth sciences have changed significantly in recent decades. Today, its various disciplines are considered to be components of a systemic approach. At the same time topics such as climate change and shortage of resources indicate that modern geological research is not only fascinating but also indispensible for us humans, who use Earth as habitat and creative space. There is much to discover still.

In the ongoing exploration of Earth - be it at its easily accessible surface or deep below, be it in the lab or from space - new, astonishing findings are constantly being uncovered. But geoscientific research does not simply focus on exciting science. It is a truly global undertaking, without which answers to the many challenges of a continuously growing world population and an increasing pressure on the natural life systems cannot be found. Large research institutions such as the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam make important contributions to this progress. In this exciting and very accessible book, GFZ researchers provide fascinating insights into their work - work that serves a better understanding of System Earth and provides the basis for the best possible and comprehensive Earth system management.
