GREENCYCLES Biogeochemistry and Climate Change Research and Training Network: News


26-28Wth April 2006

Raquel Garcia Gonzalez, Greencycles Early-Stage Researcher at LSCE, Gif-sur-Yvette, FR, presented her recent results on modelling and evaluating carbon, water and energy fluxes at a MIND workshop in Rome, IT.


Mediterranean Terrestrial Ecosystems (MTEs) are considered highly vulnerable to the expected changes in Climate. This Workshop, organized by EU-MIND Project, addressed a number of questions related to the effects of the main climate change drivers (drought, global warming, increased frequency of extreme events) on Mediterranean vegetation, ecosystems and landscapes including management options (mitigation and adaptation). Experimental as well as modeling, remote sensing and up-scaling approaches was considered in this workshop.
