This project includes three main contents: field investigation, data collection and model simulation. Physiological ecological parameters and validation data are investigated by field investigation. Data sets are collected for temperature, precipitation, radiation and land-use as input data for the modelling. With the help of the Arid Ecology Model (AEM), the response of the ecosystem carbon cycle to global change in Central Asia is simulated.
