报告人简介:

    His research is on quantifying and understanding the terrestrial carbon cycle and its links to global change. He studies the interactions of plant and soil processes across environmental and biodiversity gradients from the tropics to the Arctic. He uses process based modelling and data assimilation methods to extract information from detailed ecosystem measurements on feedback processes between soil, vegetation and the atmosphere, over timescales from days to years. Linking to remote sensing data, he uses models to upscale process information to investigate landscape processes. He focuses particularly on issues relating to the drought sensitivity of forests, the role of disturbance (fire or anthropogenic) on forest biomass, and the sensitivity of Arctic ecosystems to warming. Understanding and simulating the non-steady state behaviour of ecosystems is a current focal interest. In 2014 he received a Royal Society-Wolfson Merit Award, to support his research into "Tracing sources and sinks in the terrestrial carbon cycle under global change".
