Keywords: numerical modelling of: wildfire, atmosphere-biosphere interaction, dynamic vegetation, climate

1. A reassessment of pre-industrial fire emissions using up-to-date wildfire models indicates an underestimation of pre-industrial atmospheric aerosol-load which in turn reduces the anthropogenic impact on the aerosol forcing significantly. You find the publication in Nature Communication here.

2. I am a CEC-fellow because I am interested in the Earth-system as a whole and CEC provides an environment for collaboration and exchange with colleagues working on many different aspects of it.
