AGCI Workshop Participation
August 12, 2007 to August 17, 2007
Dr. Kaplan's research focuses on the role of the Earth's land surface in the climate system. By studying the behavior of the land surface, he aims to understand the potential for biophysical and biogeochemical feedbacks between land and atmosphere in the Earth system. He approaches these questions through the development and application of a variety of Dynamic Global Vegetation Models (DGVMs) and larger earth system models of which DGVMs make one part. Dr. Kaplan's research encompasses the traditional disciplines of earth sciences, geography, atmospheric chemistry, meteorology, soil science, hydrology, plant ecology and physiology, and computer science.
AGCI has become an intellectual proving ground, a ferment for new ideas and concepts, and a place where the different disciplines actually talk, and progress. Hal Harvey
