Ibrahim Wanyama, PhD fellow

ibrahim_wanyama

Ibrahim is a PhD student at ILRI working on assessment of impact of land-use change and management in agricultural landscapes on greenhouse gas (GHG) fluxes from soils in East Africa. Laboratory incubation of intact soil cores and static chamber approaches for measurements of GHG emissions are employed in the study. Short CV here…

Klaus Butterbach-Bahl, Prof. Dr.

klaus_butterbach
Klaus research interests are understanding the feedbacks of global environmental changes on terrestrial ecosystems and biosphere-atmosphere-exchange of environmental important trace substances (N2O, NOx, CH4, CO2), the identification and characterisation of microbial processes involved in N- and C-trace gas production and consumption as well as process oriented modelling of carbon/ nitrogen turnover in terrestrial ecosystems and the calculation of emission inventories of biogenic trace substances on regional and global scales.
