Land-Climate Interactions: Constraints for Droughts and Heatwaves in a Changing Climate

Work Package 1

"Processes": Quantitative observational diagnostics

In this work package, we are deriving and identifying quantitative observational diagnostics and related datasets for relationships and feedbacks leading to droughts (Project 1) and heatwaves (Project 2), and related impacts (e.g. modified land carbon uptake). The DROUGHT-HEAT data manager is assisting the PhD students in their work, collects datasets, provides technical support for the analyses, and builds up and manages the project database. The main deliverables of this work package are as follows:

We will address the main following research questions:
