Global change: climate, land use and biogeochemical cycles
01 / 2002 - unknown
Mission and aims: The aim of Core programme 3 is to analyse the causes and effects of, and possible solutions to global change with emphasis on changes in climate, land use and biogeochemical cycles. The ultimate aim of the various foci of the programme is to analyse global change and its impacts, and to develop models for the simulation and prediction, and assess management and policy implications under different scenarios and at various scales. The strategy of SENSE Core 3 is to perform top quality research and PhD training in the Core 3 domain on the basis of disciplinary strength and integration over disciplines from the social and natural sciences. This is done by means of individual and collaborating activities of the permanent staff and by means of launching joint externally funded research programmes for PhDs and Postdocs, aiming at integration of disciplines.
