Modelling of soil degradation and its impact on ecosystem services globally

 

In the context of the project “Ecosystems and biodiversity” of the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL), ISRIC contributes to the development of a module for quantification of (water induced) soil erosion and the impact on productivity and ecosystem services. This module will be linked to or integrated with the IMAGE / GLOBIO / LPJ global modeling suite.

Partner and contracter are the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL) with Nynke Schulp  (PBL) as guest researcher.
