The Land-Atmosphere Feedback Initiative (LAFI)

Fachgebiet: Modellierung
Gefördert durch: Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)

Projektleitung: Prof. Dr. Julia Pongratz, Prof. Dr. Mirjana Sakradzija, (co-supervision), Prof. Dr. Volker Wulfmeyer et al., Universität Hohenheim

Laufzeit: 04/2024 - 03/2028

The quality of weather forecasts, seasonal simulations, and climate projections depends critically on the adequate representation of land-atmosphere (L-A) feedbacks. These feedbacks are the result of a highly complex network of processes and variables related to the exchange of momentum, energy, and mass. Significant challenges persist in understanding processes and feedbacks, which this initiative will address.

The Land-Atmosphere Feedback Initiative (LAFI) is an interdisciplinary consortium, led by the University of Hohenheim, of researchers from atmospheric, agricultural, and soil sciences as well as from bio-geo-physics, hydrology, and neuroinformatics proposing a novel combination of advanced research methods. The overarching goal of LAFI is to understand and quantify L-A feedbacks via unique synergistic observations and model simulations from the micro-gamma (~ 2 m) to the meso-gamma (~ 2 km) scales across diurnal to seasonal time scales.
