Earth System Modeling 

  • I am collaborating with scientists at GFDL for development, systematical evaluation and climate application of Earth system models (GFDL ESM2M and ESM2G). Compared to climate system models, Earth system models incorporate land/ocean ecology and biogeochemistry, and a carbon cycle model. Some of them also has a dynamical ice sheet model for sea level rise studies (such as NCAR CESM). With Earth system models, scientists can investigate the carbon cycle and its feedback on climate change, and the impact of climate change on land/ocean ecosystems.
