Research interest

Climate system dynamics and climate history are my areas of interest. In particular, I am fascinated by the interaction between the atmosphere and the land surface with its vegetation. What role does this interaction play in the evolution of global and regional climate?

In the early 1990s, I showed that the vegetation-climate system can reach different equilibrium states with the same climate forcing. This discovery led to the prediction that an ecosystem can experience abrupt changes not only through purely biological processes, but also through the interaction with the climate as soon as external conditions change. This occurs, for example, through the gradual, long-term changes in the Earth's orbit around the Sun, which alter the distribution of insolation on Earth and the length of the seasons, or through the an increase in greenhouse gases.  

An important focus of my research is the evolution of the Sahara. I am interested in the following questions: why was the Sahara significantly greener and the Saharan climate significantly wetter during warmer periods of the last millennia than it is today? Why did the Sahara spread very rapidly - quasi-abruptly, geologically speaking - in some regions a few thousand years ago, and more gradually in others? Could the Sahara become greener again as a result of current global climate change?
