  • The Department's research concerns the analysis, integration and modeling of the Earth system with a focus on biogeochemical cycles and climate and their coupled dynamics under past, present and future conditions. The topics comprise global ecology as well as palaeoclimatology research, including components of understanding contemporary patterns and processes and how these have changes on glacial-interglacial time scales. At the moment four main research themes are being pursued:

  • Development of a coupled terrestrial carbon cycle - climate model
  • Modeling wild fire activity and biomass burning
  • Mineral dust and climate system interactions
  • LGM-Holocene changes in vegetation and carbon stocks
