Abrupt Change in Climate and Ecosystems

J.E.G. is involved in an international project led by NAU’s Nick McKay to address the following scientific questions: 1) Where are the tipping elements in Earth’s climate and ecosystems? 2) What are the dynamics of ecosystems-climate feedbacks that drove rapid desertification in subtropical North Africa 6,000 years ago? And 3) where can climate models with realistic forcings simulate changes comparable to those observed?


The Abrupt Change Toolkit, written in R, is the essential output as of writing (October 2021)
