Antonio M Baptista

Professor, Division of Environmental and Biomolecular Systems and Director, Center for Coastal Margin Observation & Prediction, both at the School of Medicine, Oregon Health & Science University.

Research interests are in understanding how coastal margins function under the complex influence of rivers, ocean, climate and humans – and how to integrate such understanding in broad-range societal decisions on sustainable development.

Richard H Becker

Richard Becker's research interests center around integrating remote sensing techniques with a wide variety of ground based techniques to investigate the interplay between natural and human systems on local and regional scales, both from a water resource and a hazard perspective. He is interested in investigating the nature and origin of water resources, where they are available, how human activities and climate change can affect their sustainable use, and how alterations in surface water systems can affect the surroundings and the environment at large. In addition, he applies this integrated approach to assess hazards generated by human and natural causes. At the environmental remote sensing lab he makes use of and teaches an interdisciplinary approach, which involves integrating remote sensing (from satellite to UAV scale), GIS, hydrologic modeling, geochemistry, geophysics, ecological observations and field techniques to investigate a wide range of geological and environmental problems related to water resources and the impacts of water utilization practices.

Frank Berninger

I am a Biogeochemist and Ecologist working on large range of subjects. Current interest are changes in productivity and energy balance of forest ecosystems. the long term effects of disturbances on biogeochemistry as well as the effects of forestry on climate change.

Francis XM Casey

The Director of the School of Natural Resource Sciences and professor of Soil Science (Soil Physics) at North Dakota State University.

Research Goals include: Field oriented study of water flow and chemical transport processes, and the spatial and temporal scales at which these are observed. Use of laboratory experiments to help identify these relationships. To develop, evaluate, and extend methods for characterizing flow and transport at different scales.

Joseph M Craine

Craine received his BS from The Ohio State University and his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 2000. He has co-authored over 100 peer-reviewed scientific publications and a book with Princeton University Press, The Resource Strategies of Wild Plants. He has worked on a variety of topics from plant traits to soil organic matter dynamics to bison performance to nutrient limitation of plant growth. Since 2014 he has helped lead a private company Jonah Ventures.

Giorgio Dall'Olmo

After obtaining a PhD in Natural Resources with a specialisation in remote sensing of turbid productive lakes, Giorgio started working with marine optics and ocean-colour remote sensing in the open ocean. Since then he has specialised in the exploitation of in-situ and satellite-based optical measurements for investigating open-ocean biology and biogeochemistry. In the last years he has been leading the UK Biogeochemical Argo programme.

Guobin Fu

Dr Guobin Fu is a Senior Research Scientist with more than 25 years of experience researching on climatic change and variability impacts on regional hydrology regimes and water resources in China, USA and Australia. It includes statistical analysing climate variability and change for hydrological applications, statistical downscaling of GCMs to provide climate inputs suitable for regional climate impact assessments, surface hydrological modelling at catchment and basin scales, and field experiments and modelling of pan evaporation and evapotranspiration. Since joining CSIRO in 2006, he has participated several high-profile key projects, such as IOCI, SEACI, Goyder Climate and sustainable yield projects.

Hiroshi Ichikawa

Dr. Hiroshi Ichikawa is a former principal scientist of Research and Development Center for Global Change (RCGC), Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC). He completed his Dr.Sci. degree at Kyoto University in 1978. He studied on the physical oceanography and fisheries oceanography as a faculty member of the department of fisheries sciences, Kagoshima University, Japan, in 1979-2005,and a senior or principal scientist of JAMSTEC in 2005-2015. Subject of his research are the Kuroshio variability and air-sea interaction processes by observations.

Blanca Jimenez-Cisneros

Anja Linstädter

Anja Linstädter is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Cologne and head of the Range Ecology and Management Group. Her research focuses on global change impacts on managed terrestrial ecosystems. She is particularly interested in the interactive effects of global change agents - such as grazing and drought - on the functioning of African drylands, and in consequences for ecosystem service delivery. Ultimately, her research aims at designing ecosystem-based management strategies.
