Modelling the Northern Humboldt Ecosystem


There has been a long historical collaboration between ZMT and IMARPE, which has contributed to the modelling of Peruvian ecosystems. The Oceanographic, Ecosystem and Climate Change Laboratory of IMARPE has achieved important advances in the knowledge of atmospheric, oceanic, biogeochemical and ecological processes at different spatial scales, in order to simulate the impacts of El Niño events and climate change, with the aim to contribute with adaptation strategies for vulnerable artisanal communities. Further interactions between ZMT and IMARPE in the framework of the second phase of the Humboldt Tipping Project are highlighted.
