Challenging Our Environmental Impact
In a relatively short period of time, humans have created a significant forcing on Earth’s climate. As a result, we are confronted with new scientific, environmental, and societal challenges. Addressing these challenges requires an approach, which not only encompasses the traditional fields of Earth science (physics, biology, chemistry, and geology) but also incorporates the interactions between humans and the environment.
Researching New Depths of Understanding
We’ve developed a modeling-based research program aimed at furthering our knowledge of the physical climate system and its interactions with eco- and human-systems. With a particular focus on the coastal ocean, a central theme of our research has been the exploration of links and feedbacks between dynamical components—physics, biogeochemistry, fish, and socio-economics.
