Dr Douglas Clark
I am a land surface modeller, interested in hydrology land-atmosphere interactions. Most of my work uses the JULES land surface model. In terms of CEH topics, I contribute to the topics Biogeochemistry and Climate System Processes (BGC2) and Science for Water Management (WA3).
My current or recent work includes:
I am interested in modelling all aspects of terrestrial hydrology and, increasingly, how these interact with other aspects of biogeochemical cycles. Much of my work concerns global or regional scales - i.e. it tends to look at the large areas typical of climate models. In particular, I am interested in:
1998 - present: Land surface modeller at CEH. Areas of activity have included:
