Institutskolloquium PG: Tree growth in a changing climate – from data to model and back again. – Mi. 31.01.2024

Physisch-geographisches Kolloquium (PG):
Tree growth in a changing climate – from data to model and back again.

Prof. Dr. Christian Zang (Applied University Weihenstephan-Triesdorf)

Moderation: Prof. Dr. Achim Bräuning

This presentation explores the synergy between tree-ring data and modeling techniques, focusing on enhancing our comprehension of ecological patterns and improving predictive models in the context of climate change, tree growth, and forest ecosystem dynamics. The talk is structured around two main ideas: (1) using tree-ring data to foster the realistic process implementation in dynamic vegetation models through novel empirical constraints, and (2) employing purposefully incomplete dynamic models as ecological null models. The first part focuses on the forest ecosystem response to climatic extremes such as drought and late spring frost, while the second part discusses the potential in using models to detect critical slowdown in tree growth as an early warning indicator of tree vitality loss.

Wann: Mittwoch, 31.01.2024 von 12:30 bis 14:00 Uhr
Wo: Präsenz, Seminarraum Tennenlohe, Wetterkreuz 15, 91058 Erlangen.
