Tandem-L offers a unique opportunity to closely mesh the multifarious activities of the Helmholtz Association (HGF), spanning the different research areas, in a joint interdisciplinary project. The expertise of the relevant HGF research centres with their specific modelling techniques is imperative for producing highly aggregated information products. Moreover, the complementary expertise of the HGF research centres and the American scientific team in data utilisation and modelling means that a fruitful cooperation with a large synergistic effect can be expected. Tandem-L is therefore predestined to set a historic milestone in earth system research and make an important contribution to a better understanding and better preservation of the earth and its environment.
