Response to Climate Change - System Approaches
Research Team 11
The team has focus on comparing how climate change will affect agricultural landscape systems in Norway and Minnesota.This includes positive and negative effects on production systems and adaptation to such changes. Special focus on green house gas emissions and measures to reduce emissions, carbon sequestration. Special focus on winter hydrology in catchments, runoff pathways and environmental effects. The work is based on 3 Subgroups: Hydrology, Carbon in soils and Response to climate change- system approach. The team
