Advanced terrestrial ecosystem analysis and modelling (ATEAM)

Objective

We propose to assess the vulnerability of major European ecosystem types and the services they provide, to global environmental change. Based on a definition of services established with stakeholders, a suite of numerical models will be adapted and validated for the European conditions. Multiple scenarios of future environmental change (economic, atmospheric composition, climate, land use and nitrogen deposition) are used to derive a set of scenarios for changing ecosystem services. These changes will be analysed quantitatively and communicated and discussed with stakeholders. A basic result is a set of "vulnerability maps", depicting, for certain basic assumptions of change, and several time-slices through the 21st century, which regions, ecosystems and services are potentially more vulnerable to change than others.
