Extreme meteorological events and global warming: a vicious cycle?
August 14, 2013
The amounts of carbon dioxide and other trace gases that vegetation and soil exchange with the atmosphere affect the climate in a variety of ways. Markus Reichstein and his colleagues at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena are analyzing this complex structure.

High-precision measurement technology and a steel construction nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower are allowing scientists in Siberia to gain an ever greater understanding of climate change. The research of the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry with ZOTTO would be inconceivable without Russian partners.
