Cross collaboration science meeting – LEMONTREE science team and Tsinghua University 110th Anniversary celebrations. Thursday May 13th 2021.
The LEMONTREE team in collaboration with Tsinghua University hold a joint science meeting to discuss Land system models; their known deficiencies and how the LEMONTREE project will be bringing new scientific theory to create the next generation models.
Co-hosts, Professor Sandy Harrison, University of Reading and Co-Director, Leverhulme Centre for Wildfires, Environment and Society and Dr Wang Han, Tsinghua University then introduced today’s agenda.
After a brief introduction to the LEMONTREE project, Sandy Harrison handed over to Professor Colin Prentice, FRS, Chair of Biosphere and Climate Impacts and Director, Leverhulme Centre for Wildfires, Environment and Society Imperial College London to discuss the main topic:
“Land-atmosphere exchanges of carbon, energy and water: new theory and next-generation models”.
Dr Wang Han, Tsinghua University, continued the optimality discussions in her presentation:
“Predicting leaf economic spectrum from optimality theory”.
Huiying Xu, PhD student at Tsinghua University, shared her work on
“The coordination between photosynthesis and hydraulics”
Giulia Mengoli, PhD student at Imperial College, presented
“Ecosystem photosynthesis in land-surface models: a first-principles approach.”
Koen Hufkens, post doctoral research assistant at ETH, presented
“Data and Code provenance: systematic and successive integration of data and analysis in LEMONTREE. “
Sandy Harrison then led the Q&A on the presentation themes and on general discussions/ ideas for topics for further investigation.
The LEMONTREE project thank Professor Yong Luo, Dr Wang Han and Tsinghua University for arranging the science conference and all the presenters for their time today.
