Organised by Katy Dynarski, INCyTE is running a what is shaping up to be a really interesting seminar series. They indulged me in a long rant about what is going on with BNF in the CMIP6 models and what data might help to fix it (pun intended).
Well, that was a year. About the only normal thing was finishing it with AGU. It was online, but that’s being fussy. You can (maybe? for a while?) catch my talk online here. It’s all about BNF in the CMIP6 models.
Pity it couldn’t be in person, of course, but it was great to catch up with what some colleagues are doing. This featured the BNF quiz again, and Colin Jones rightly pointed out that the answer is Vegan Cheeseburger.
Well, I don’t think anyone expected it to be like this. I was supposed to give a talk, but it didn’t work out like that. Here’s my presentation for EGU Sharing Science Online, aka the CMIP6 BNF QUIZ, because since we can’t see each other we should at least try to have a fun time …
Three years on and it’s impressive how much has been achieved in CRESCENDO, and since we have a short extension, partly to allow us to contribute to COP26 in Glasgow, there is still more time to do more! Yay!
The magic about JULES is the sheer range of work that is being done. Every time you think you know what the model is, there’s more. Scotland was sunny for us, which always helps, and I was heartened by the changes that are being made to make JULES a more user-friendly model for newcomers. I …
I gave a talk to the lovely Geosystems group at University of Birmingham School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences. I had a load of great chats with the people there. The invited talk was: Vegetation Biodiversity Hotspots over the Inter-glacial cycle Plant biodiversity underpins the majority of terrestrial life on earth and therefore requires preservation as …
Carina Williams asked me to give a talk at the Met Office on my work on biological nitrogen fixation in JULES.
In Toulouse. A great opportunity to catch up with colleagues and find out how the rest of the project is going, as well as update people on the progress of my BNF work with a poster presentation.
A visit to CRESCENDO colleague Sonke Zaehle and his group at Jena.
