Climate change

Project code: DFG SFB 552
Contract period: 01.01.2000 - 01.01.2009
Purpose of research: Basic research

In B1 H2O-, CO2- and energy fluxes between the atmosphere and a natural rain forest and other land use types relevant in the rain forest margin zone will be quantified by field measurements and by numerical modelling, so that water availability, and CO2- fluxes, plant production and local climate influences can be assessed. A meteorological network will be run to regionalize atmospheric properties for studied areas to support ecological and socio-economic research. Events of ENSO will be characterized on regional and local scale and its short/long term effects on the forest margin zone will be predicted and quantitatively described.
