CLIP Meeting

February 13, 2009

  1. Note – CLIP writing workshop will be next Wednesday, Feb. 18, starting at 9:00. Bryan and Brent will be coming here, Dong Yun can participate in the morning via Skpe.

  1. See below the revised paper list. Let’s concentrate on the project-wide papers during the workshop.

  1. Alternative/ additional LUC model – Qi and Jenni van Ravensway

    1. Take ClipCover as starting point. Use Gopal’s simulations of maize & beans from different climate scenarios.

      1. Will prepare several scenarios based on various “rules”. We will look at the expert results to identify “rules” of how/ where people will expand & contract cropping.

      2. Then, we will compare the scenarios, including what the experts said where areas will expand/ contract.

      3. Examples of rules –

        1. Use threshold of 500 kg/ha below which no cropping.

        2. urban density & growth patterns

        3. others

      4. identify transition or sensitive area – zone of expansion & contraction zone where competition over water & grazing/ cropping land is occurring, and where economics, land tenure & policies would affect what happens.

      5. Later-- spatial regression approach to compare with Bryan’s LTM – use roads, urban centers, yields etc. to locate changes in LU. Do scenarios based on different policies, rates of urbanization or other human decisions.

  1. Dong Yun – drought declining along coast. She will ask Sarah for new Kenya station data

Papers (lead authors in bold)





Note-Feb 2009

1 (must wait until close loop)

W/m2 response (ie reflections on relative importance of GHG and LUC on climate change)

JGR, Climate Dynamics

Nathan, Brent, Pius, Bryan, Gopal , Joseph, Magezi etc.

Climate focused. Nathan & Brent working on it (drafted?)


Tipping points

Ecology and Society

Bryan and group (Len, Jean), Joseph, Sam



Regional differences of climate change impacts (what is the effect of topography, large water bodies, other spatial variables? Why?)


Qi, (Sarah), Deepak, Alagaswarmy/Bryan, Jenny, David, Nathan. Dong Yun on historical trends.

Climate focused—merged with #1.

4. (will lead into 5.)

People (Adaptations and Responses to Climate Change and Climate Variability in a Dynamic Socioeconomic System)

Human Ecology, World Development

Jenny, Salome, Pius, Sam, Paul, David, Camille, Len (ed.), others



Food production, climate variability and climate change (regional, site examples) under diff scenarios of technology etc.

Agriculture, Ecosystems and the Environment

*Bryan, Brent, Nathan, Alag., Phil, Jean, Pius, Jeff, Declan, Magezi. Dong Yun on climate variability.

Food risk paper in various versions. Need to finalize.

6. (can start for WD because short)

Policy briefs

Ambio, World Development, International Policy and Development, Environment

Pius, Paul, Salome, Sam, Len, Jenny, Joseph, Magezi

Done for policy workshops in 2008. Revise for press ?



{Must be sure to be based around CLIP}


Bryan, Marianne, David, group, Gary Yohe, Tom Deeds, Micky Glanz



Closing the loop: findings

Science with on-line supplement, Nature

Jenny, Qi, Bryan, Nathan, Phil + full group

Need to complete loop


How to do multi/interdisciplinary research (multiple institutions and disciplines)

Chronicle of Higher Education. ‘Brazilian’ journal (ask David)

David, Len, Bryan, Salome, Paul, Pius



Closing the loop: methods (can use proposal, GeoForum as base)

Ecological Complexity, Earth Interactions

Jenny, Qi, Bryan, Nathan, Phil + full group

need to complete loop—should we merge with # 8?

* Lead on technical part but not whole paper

Green shaded: promised to NSF; can’t be started yet

Yellow shaded: promised to NSF, can be started now

Pink: ready to write, not promised
