We shall address the coupling between atmospheric circulation and the modelling of ecosystems, to have a better understanding of the carbon cycle, perturbed both by land use and Climate Change. The
What are the links between carbon and climate? How does this evolve at the scale of a human life? What are the main factors that govern the CO2 sinks? What will happen to CO2 sinks over the next
Philippe Bousquet indicates how human activities disrupt the natural carbon cycle. He first proposes a geographic reading of these emissions, then he proposes a study of the human activities which are
Laurent Bopp leans on the different emission scenarios of the last IPCC report to discuss about the possible evolutions of the water cycle, of the cryosphere, of the oceans and of the carbon cycle
In this video, Nicolas Viovy, an engineer at the French Atomic Energy and Alternative Energy Commission (CEA), presents the major issues related to the finiteness of natural resources, be they
The ultimate objective of climate change mitigation is to reduce the amount of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in order to achieve “stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the
The synthesis of carbon-neutral/zero-carbon footprint fuels via solar thermochemical processes (“Solar Fuels”) represents a promising approach for the realization of a sustainable energy future.
In this presentation the start is made from the 2007 IPCC statement that it now seems consolidated that there is a clear sign of the importance of the anthropogenic factors in the climate change
Philippe Peylin studies the future of the carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere. He focuses on the performance of the two main carbon sinks: ocean and earth.
Projections of future climate change rely on global climate models. Such models simulate the dynamics and physics of the coupled atmosphere-ocean system and move towards models of the full Earth
