ESKP (Earth System Knowledge Platform) is the knowledge platform of the Research Field "Earth and Environment" of the Helmholtz Association and is supported by eight Helmholtz Centres.

The website eskp.de/en vividly conveys knowledge on the central topics of natural hazards, climate change, pollutants and the effects of the energy turnaround on the environment in the form of scientific articles, interviews, video clips, science GIFs, information graphics and more. The range of expertise in the Research Area Earth and Environment allows complex topics to be examined from different perspectives and to be presented as a whole.
