A team of researchers, including Boston University Assistant Professor of Earth & Environment Michael Dietze, has been awarded more than $10 million over the next five years from the National Science Foundation to develop software to manage and make sense of vast amounts of digital scientific data.
Researchers in Professor Dietze’s Ecological Forecasting lab at BU will be applying the software tools the team develops to two case studies focused on the responses of forests to climate change. In particular, both case studies aim to improve the representation of forests and other vegetation in Earth System Models, which is currently the second largest source of uncertainty in climate change projections behind cloud physics.
