MAGIC-DML: Measuring/Mapping/Modeling Antarctic Geomorphology and Ice Change in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

Reconstructing and predicting the response of the Antarctic Ice Sheet to climate change is one of the major challenges facing Earth Scientists, and is best approached by integrating field observations with numerical ice sheet models...

Scaling up soil carbon dynamics from microbial cells to ecosystems for next-generation Earth System models
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

Emissions of the greenhouse gases from soils are one order of magnitude larger than anthropogenic emissions and quantifying them is a major challenge in climate change research. It is challenging because emissions originate from microbial processes at microscopic scales that w...

International Network for Terrestrial Research and Monitoring in the Arctic
01/10/2016 - 30/09/2020

INTERACT aims for a geographically comprehensive and excellent state-of-the-art terrestrial research infrastructure throughout the Arctic and adjoining forest and alpine regions to identify environmental change, to facilitate understanding and prediction of future change and t...

A framework for improving water resources data using hydraulic modelling
01/02/2016 - 01/02/2020

Water resources are threatened by human-induced changes such as pollution, climate change and over-exploitation. Reliable information about streamflow (discharge) is needed to manage these resources sustainably for essential societal applications such as flood def...

Modernizing Nepal’s Groundwater Resources
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2019

Groundwater in Nepal maintains flows in streams essential for human
needs, food production, ecological health, and hydropower production.
Baseline data needed to characterize current groundwater conditions are
largely unavailable making it impossible to assess the potent...

Precise linking of late Quaternary palaeoclimate records in the North Atlantic region
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

The aim of the project is to get a better understanding of rapid climate changes in the past and to compare climate signals preserved in different high-resolution climate archives in the North Atlantic region. We will address this research question by analysing high-resolution...

Adaptation to a New Economic Reality
01/12/2015 - 30/11/2019

The present economic model of permanent growth is unstable and leads to cycles of growth, peaks and crashes. We propose to contribute to developing new economic thinking based on knowledge of global resources availability. The Adaptation to a New Economic Reality (AdaptEconII)...

Beyond EPICA - Oldest Ice
01/10/2016 - 30/09/2019

To better constrain the response of Earth’s climate system to continuing emissions, it is essential to turn to the past. A key advance would be to understand the transition in Earth’s climate response to changes in orbital forcing during the 'mid-Pleistocene transition' (900 t...

Responses in floral diversity and distributions to changes in land use and climate
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2018

Despite the huge value of biodiversity to humans, our actions are having large and detrimental effects on ecological systems worldwide. Land-use change reduces the size and quality of available habitat for many organisms, while a warming climate is forcing species to move to h...

Quantifying the trade-offs between ecosystem service provision and water management in rice systems
01/12/2016 - 31/12/2018

Rice – a staple food for 3 billion people – consumes more water than any
other crop, leading to unsustainable water withdrawals. Alternate
wetting and drying (AWD) has thus been advocated instead of continuous
flooding. However, AWD does not guarantee high yields and pro...
