This workshop brings a small but varied group of geoscientists and climate modelers together with machine learners, statisticians, and representatives of other fields where ML has already had a big impact. Discussions will center on how innovative and efficient ML methods will provide new, innovative and transformative ways of modeling and projecting the Earth system and extracting information from massive data volumes. Of particular importance will be an assessment of the challenges ahead in combining physical knowledge with data-driven methods. This is a challenging and promising research field where a concentrated effort will have a high impact both to advance science and to address topics of critical importance and high relevance for human society. Newly developed methods can open opportunities for innovative new hybrid ML-Earth system models, as well as analyses of models and observations. With enhanced analysis capabilities, we can look forward to revolutionary advancement of Earth system sciences to accelerate scientific understanding, modeling, and projecting climate change.
