Welcome to the Global Change Research Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We are a group of scientists who are interested in understanding how climate change and human activities affect terrestrial ecosystems as well as their feedbacks to the human and Earth system. We develop and use a variety tools including land surface models, remote sensing model and data, integrated assessment model and model-data fusion techniques.
