Peter and Eva have been to NCAR in Boulder, Colorado to learn about the Community Terrestrial Systems Model (CTSM) and its new vegetation module, the Functionally Assembled Terrestrial Ecosystem Simulator (FATES). Eva will introduce the models, and Peter will talk about his experience using FATES.
The GEco group aims to integrate biological, ecological and geological knowledge, as well as the varying effects of human influence on nature. The group leader is Olav Skarpaas.
A new PhD fellow in GEco - Eva L. Eriksen - will be working on dynamic ecological modelling. The PhD project will focus on the spatial dynamics of plants in relation to climate change, as a part of GEco’s collaboration with the LATICE network and the recently funded EMERALD and INCLINE projects. Professor Olav Skarpaas is the main supervisor.
