7th GINKGO meeting at the Center of Wood Science at University of Hamburg, 29/30 Sept. 2011
This year's meeting focuses on the importance of regional land management for global climate change and vice versa. We would like to discuss questions like: Do we need to include land management into global climate models? Can the mitigating potential of land management be estimated without considering climate feedbacks between landsurface and atmosphere? This focus includes all aspects of modelling forest and land management, as well as the relevant aspects of Earth system models like vegetation, carbon cycle, nutrient dynamics, and land use. This focus does, however, not exclude other topics; all contributions related to climate and land biosphere are welcome.
The meeting will be located at the Institute for World Forestry in the Center of Wood Science at University Hamburg in Hamburg-Bergedorf, Leuschnerstr. 91. It will start on Thursday, 29 September at ca 13:00h and it will end on Friday, 30 September at ca 14:00.
