Predictability of climate risks to Nordic forest ecosystem services through multi-proxy data comparisons and modelling (NordicProxy)

 

Coordinator: Igor Drobyshev, SLU, igor.drobyshev@slu.se

An integrated approach to climate impacts: Climate change will have many different impacts on forest ecosystems, and it will be impossible to manage these impacts one by one.

The new NordicProxy network will overcome the barriers between scientific fields by synthesizing their knowledge of climate impacts. Subjects of analysis will include biomass productivity and carbon storage, patterns of forest fire activity, pathogen outbreaks, and forest composition.

Several ongoing national projects will be involved in the network. Network activities planned for 2019 include student visits, a joint field seminar and a mini-conference.
