1. Global Change: Consequences, Projections and Mitigation
Climate and land use patterns are changing globally, with far reaching consequences for managed and natural systems and for human welfare.
At BayCEER, we document recent and past climatic processes and land use patterns, and their consequences for ecosystems using a wide range of techniques from eddy-flux towers to remote sensing and modelling approaches. We conduct lab and field experiments to project consequences of global change for populations, communities and ecosystems, and we devise strategies to adapt to and mitigate its consequences. We work at the local, regional, continental and global scale.
