Research on Anthropogenic Impacts in Natural Systems

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:

  1. characterize the natural dynamics of the Earth system components and their interactions
  2. find out how these dynamics, and the associated processes, are transformed in response to human activities.

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).

January 2019 to December 2021

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

December 2019 to November 2023

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, ...
