http://www.imk-tro.kit.edu/img/content/ESKP_kacheln_klein.jpgThe Helmholtz-Association with the initiative Earth System Knowledge Platform (ESKP) is setting up a knowledge database for scientific topics with information for specific target groups concerning natural hazards and climate aspects as well as precautionary measures and possibilities. The central goal of the platform is to provide available knowledge (expert-knowledge, context-knowledge, action know how and system-knowledge) of participating Helmholtz centers concerning the topic 'earth system'.

The institute for meteorology and climate research (IMK) is contributing in the section with focus on 'natural hazards'. The focus is put on providing knowledge concerning the topic 'winter and summer storms'.
