报告题目:Climate & Environmental Change Research in Exeter

报告时间:2016.12.02 周五 15:00-16:00

报告地点:蒙民伟科技大楼南楼S1021

主讲人:Prof Stephen Sitch 

               Chair in Climate Change,  University of Exeter

 

讲座简介:

Prof Sitch will first give an overview of climate research at the University of Exeter and show case recent work and research interests on: health and climate change; the land carbon cycle; Chemistry, Aerosols & land interactions; Ocean carbon cycle and Climate Dynamics. A main focus of the talk will be on land-atmosphere interactions, including the role of land ecosystems in mitigating present-day climate change, it’s role in regulating interannual variability in the atmospheric CO2 growth rate, and the importance of land parameterization in future climate change projection. He will also present work on the impact of changing aerosol quantity and quality (diffuse component) on the land carbon sink, and the impact of ozone pollution on the carbon cycle.
