ICTs in the Study and Management of the Environment

ICTs provide us with an unprecedented ability to collect and process environmental information that far exceeds the capacity of any individual, may span time durations far beyond that of a human lifetime, and may encompass the entire terrestrial system from the depths of the ocean to upper reaches of the atmosphere. It is the complexity of the environment that ICTs can help us to simplify and understand the impact of humans on the environment. This is achieved with the help of increasingly powerful and interconnected computing platforms combined with extensive informational databases.
