Research projects


Research themes

CENL endeavors to improve the understanding of land-atmosphere interaction by probing into vegetation dynamics and their biogeophysical and biogeochemical feedback to climate, with a special focus on these dynamics under climatic extremes. We develop and apply ecosystem models and climate models to test our research hypothesis, and produce key ecosystem and climate variables to provide high-quality ecosystem and climate datasets at different temporal and spatial scales for the scientific community and stakeholders.
