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.
The annual JULES meeting. Always a good time – and lots of moves by the community to make JULES more useable and robust. 🙂
Workshop: “Global Biodiversity Modelling – ISIMIP/ISIPEDIA Biodiversity Sector Meeting” – 16-18 May in Frankfurt. An invitation only workshop on biodiversity modelling, where I represented JEDI-DGVM.
Talk on Effects of Different Modelling Approaches to Biological Nitrogen Fixation in IE2.9/BG1.5/CL3.07/SSS13.73 – Nitrogen-transformation processes in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems under global change.
This was an invited talk on Effects of Land Cover Changes over the Last Glacial-interglacial cycle in BG2.19/CL2.17 – Land use and land cover change effects on surface biogeophysics, biogeochemistry and climate.
CRESCENDO is the European project I’m employed on, and aims to improve earth system models. The GA was an opportunity to catch up with colleagues and discuss progress. I gave a science talk about my nitrogen fertilisation work, which stimulated a good bit of debate. 😉
iLeaps (Integrated Land Ecosystem-Atmosphere Process Study) have a conference every four years, so it’s an opportunity not to be missed. I gave a talk on Climate Engineering with Nitrogen fertilisation, which has generated a good bit of discussion. I also caught up with a lot of colleagues from CEH and the Met Office and other …
