About this research group
The world ocean plays a vital role in regulating the pace of climate change as well as sustaining life on Earth. Our unique multidisciplinary team, comprises experts in data collections and modeling, addresses both fundamental and society relevant questions on how our ocean ecosystem and geochemistry are transformed by climate change. We apply direct measurements, proxies, and state-of-the-art ocean models to describe mechanistic changes and feedbacks during warm past (interglacials), present, and future climate changes. Our team coordinates and participates in numerous (inter)national projects on marine carbon sources and sinks, ocean acidification, carbon-climate feedback, ocean observing system, ocean circulation and ventilation, geoengineering, ocean deoxygenation, carbon capture and storage, and past climate carbon cycle, among others. We are also actively involved in international syntheses of Global Carbon Project, Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, and numerous global data products.
