Welcome to the Professorship for "Land Surface-Atmosphere Interactions"

 

Dealing with the impact of global environmental change is the great challenge of the 21st century. Terrestrial ecosystems play an important role by storing large amounts of carbon thereby mitigating climate change. Developing a sound understanding of the functioning of ecosystem processes which are essential for interactions with the atmosphere is the goal of the professorship for “Land Surface-Atmosphere Interactions”.

Our methodological approach includes a combination of observational data and models and ranges from the calculation of simple statistical models to the development of complex process-based models from local, regional to global scale.

Research Projects

  • Amazon-FACE: Free Air CO2 Enrichment Experiment in the Amazon Basin
  • AmazonFLUX: Investigates plant and soil interactions in the Amazon Rainforest to determine how nutrients and water fluxes may affect the forest under global change
  • BLIZ: Interactions between society, land use, ecosystem services and biodiversity in Bavaria until 2100
  • C-turn: Carbon in the forest ecosystem - turnover rates, storage and silvicultural strategies for adapting to climate change
  • Development of LPJ-GUESS
  • FORECO
  • HyBBEx: Hysteresis effects in Bavarian beech forest ecosystems through climate extremes
  • KROOF: Extreme drought and progressively limiting water reserves do not only pose huge challenges on mankind, but also on forest ecosystems. In which ways do trees meet such challenges? This question is jointly explored by forest scientists and biologists of the Technische Universität München (TUM) and the Helmholtz-Zentrum München by means of the »Kranzberg Forest Roof Experiment« (KROOF).
  • PhosForest: Constraining phosphorus feedbacks on the CO2 fertilization effect in the Amazon rainforest
  • STEPSEC
  • VALORTREE: Projekt "Validierung des phytotoxischen Ozonflusses in Nadeln und Blättern als Voraussetzung für eine realistische, integrierte Risikobewertung für die Ökosystemleistungen der Wälder in Deutschland“
