The ERC-Synergy project Q-Arctic
(2021-2027) aims at establishing a next generation coupled land-surface model that explicitly resolves highest resolution landscape features and disturbance processes in the Arctic. Model development will be informed by novel remote sensing methodologies linking landscape characteristics and change potential at an exceptional level of detail. The contributions of our group at MPI-BGC will focus on interdisciplinary observations at multiple spatiotemporal scales, intended to deliver novel insight into permafrost carbon cycle processes. All components are essential for our objective to generate an unprecedented process-based projection of permafrost sustainability under future scenarios with a focus on abrupt changes.
