Carbon Cycle Modelling

The Carbon Cycle Modelling group studies the physical and chemical land surface processes and interactions and feedbacks between atmosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere.

Specific research topics include carbon dioxide, methane and water fluxes and their reservoirs in vegetation and soil, transport in atmosphere, and model-data fusion using advanced numerical methods.The research is based on numerical modelling, from local to global scale with focus on northern regions.

The work is done with close collaboration with the Atmospheric and Ocean Modelling group as well as the Atmospheric Composition Research, Earth Observation and Arctic Research units.

Here is an example of atmospheric inverse model results:
