"Robust projections of forests under climate change - data, methods and models"

The final conference of PROFOUND COST action will bring together an interdisciplinary crowd of vegetation modellers, forest scientists, ecologists, statisticians, forest managers and other key stakeholders to discuss nothing less than how to provide robust projections of forests under climate change from local to global scales.

What to expect:

  • Highlights of 4 years of research within PROFOUND, including model-data integration, advancing process understanding, assessing uncertainties, using cutting-edge methods to parameterise, evaluate and compare forest models across Europe, and linking modeling results with stakeholder needs
  • Plenary, parallel and poster sessions to present your own research
  • Dedicated information and training sessions for Early Career Scientists
  • Interdisciplinary sessions together with impact modellers from a wide range of disciplines such as agriculture and hydrology as part of the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP)
  • organised back-to-back with the IMPACTS World 2017 conference

Dr. Michal Petr will present the research about ‘Review of diverse uncertainties in forest modelling and forest decision-making’ in the session" on Monday.
