Transdisciplinary Concepts & Methods - Research Domain IV
The research domain "Transdisciplinary Concepts and Methods – TCM" develops climate impact research in those areas where concepts and methods are found wanting. It does so guided by stakeholder dialogues and using mathematics as a tool to meet conceptual challenges.
Is the complex interacting networks approach appropriate to study challenging problems of changing climate and their impact on geoecological and socio-economic systems?
How can we improve the knowledge about extreme events and climate transitions in past, presence, and future under explicit consideration of uncertainties, missing information, and highly complex relationships?
How can adaptive network modeling be utilized to improve our understanding of the structure, the evolution and the potential vulnerability of global metabolic flows?
What is the mid- and long-term coevolution of natural and socio-economic
subsystems of the Earth system and its relationship to planetary boundaries?
