Project: There’s no such thing as “The Tropical Rainforest”: regional and continent-specific parameterization of tropical forests in a global vegetation model

2016-01-01 – 2020-10-31

Abstract

Tropical forests are expected to have regional and continent-specific climate change responses and feedbacks. However, current climate models and predictions do not account for this. Therefore this project will develop the first regional and continent specific parameterization of the global vegetation model ORCHIDEE-CAN for tropical forests.
