About this book

Earth System Analysis is a science in statu nascendi, the nature of which is transdisciplinary to a degree never seen before. Thus, the book describes not only the initial state of this new science, but also delivers a multifaceted integration of these. The resulting master paradigm, namely the coevolution of nature and anthroposphere within a geo-cybernetic continuum of processes, is based on a structured manifold of partial paradigms with their specific ranges.
