Welcome to LUCCI!
LUCCI is a research centre at Lund University devoted to studies of the carbon cycle and how it interacts with the climate system. The centre is financed for a ten-year period (2008-2017) by a Linnaeus grant from the Swedish Research Council VR.
The centre involves about 85 researchers from geology, physical geography, climatology, atmospheric physics and chemistry, ecology, plant physiology, soil science and microbiology. Four Lund university departments are represented: Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, Geology, Microbial Ecology and Nuclear Physics.
Working together in a creative cross-disciplinary environment, our goals are to increase the understanding of how the carbon cycle and climate system function and interact, and to disseminate our findings to society.
Detailed knowledge about how climate and human activities influence the sources and sinks of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane is needed in order to make the informed and effective decisions needed for combating climate change.
