¤30 million for research into accelerating climate change
¤30 million for research into accelerating climate change
Climate change can accelerate due to feedback mechanisms: complex phenomena caused by climate change that in turn can further drive climate change. An example is the extra CO2 emissions from thawing permafrost. Research into the influence of feedback mechanisms in the long term has been ongoing, and modern climate change research is obviously happening as well, but the connection between the two has so far been underemphasized.

’By making data easier to find, others can use it too in their research’
This spring Utrecht University geoscientists will launch a new metadata catalogue. But what exactly is such a catalogue, and how can it help you as a scientist? Project manager Ronald Pijnenburg gives us a tour of the new system.
