Research Project: Feedback analysis and evaluation using the CLIMBER model

Supervisor: Dr Andrey Ganopolski (Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research)
Secondary Supervisor: Dr Andrew Friend (University of Cambridge)

Project Description

Use the CLIMBER2 EMIC to investigate climate-vegetation interactions and feedbacks at global and continental scales, and CLIMBER3 to study climate-biosphere feedbacks due to large-scale land use change (e.g. expanded biofuel production).
