  • Title: Using Emulators to Assess the Climate Sensitivity of a Vegetation Model
  • Short description:

    Vegetation models can be used to assess the impacts of climate change on future
    food production (i.e. farming). However, vegetation models are computationally
    expensive to run and to account for the uncertainty in future climate scenarios
    the models should, ideally, be run using as many different scenarios as
    possible. One way of reducing the computational cost of this procedure is to fit
    a statistical model to a suitable subset of vegetation model runs and then use
    the statistical model to cheaply obtain estimates of the vegetation model.
