Impacts of Climate Change on the biomes of South America

PI: Luis Salazar
Institution: Center for Weather Forecasting and Climate Studies in Brazil
Additional Investigators: Carlos Nobre
Abstract:
We propose to use the IPCC simulations for the 20th century and the 21st
century to drive a terrestrial biosphere model for South America and study the
potential vegetation redistribution under climate change. The potential
vegetation model require monthly data of temperatura, precipitation, rain-days
and wind speed.
