Artificial Intelligence for the Earth Systems

Submit to AIES


Artificial Intelligence for the Earth Systems (AIES) (Provisional ISSN: 2769-7525) publishes research on the development and application of methods in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), data science, and statistics that is relevant to meteorology, atmospheric science, hydrology, climate science, and ocean sciences. Topics include development of AI/ML, statistical, and hybrid methods and their application; development and application of methods to further the physical understanding of earth system processes from AI/ML models such as explainable and physics-based AI; the use of AI/ML to emulate components of numerical weather and climate models; incorporation of AI/ML into observation and remote sensing platforms; the use of AI/ML for data assimilation and uncertainty quantification; and societal applications of AI/ML for AIES disciplines, including ethical and responsible use of AI/ML and educational research on AI/ML.

Artificial Intelligence for the Earth Systems is fully open access.
