Global Change Research Institute

CzechGlobe - Global Change Research Institute has been established as a centre of excellence within The Czech Academy of Sciences. Using the spatially located infrastructure including modern techniques and instrumentation (e.g. eddy-covariance ecosystem stations, remote sensing laboratory, etc.), research is carried out in three main segments affected by global change, namely the (1) atmosphere – climate change and its modelling, (2) ecosystems – the carbon cycle, impacts of global change on biodiversity and ecosystems, and (3) socio-economic systems - impacts of global change on the development and behaviour of society.
