Our research is on global change.
We study the impact of human activities on the natural environment.
The approach we adopt is highly interdisciplinary, combining tools from envirionmental chemistry, remote sensing, wildlife observation, and citizen science. We bridge the natural and social sciences to study the Earth System from an integrated perspective.
To achieve this, we have 2 complementary strategies:
We target different spatial and temporal scales to have access to areas and time periods with different levels of anthropogenic impacts (e.g. remote areas, past climate changes).
Up to 30% of worlds rainforests overlap with conventional oil and natural gas reserves. Despite the world economic crisis, the growing global demand in oil increased from 85.3 to 95.0 million barrels
Tropical climates are changing rapidly in the most populated regions of the planet. The changes largely arise from alterations in the Hadley circulation driven by natural and anthropogenic factors, ...
The overriding aim of GEOLAKE is to disentangle the effects of climate change and anthropogenic activities on the environment and to highlight the long-term adaptation of populations in the Upper ...
