Wilhelm May


Lund University

As a climate scientist, Wilhelm May has been working on various aspects of climate variability and change, including the Indian summer monsoon or heavy precipitation events. He is especially interested in the coupling between the land surface and the atmosphere. He has also worked with adaptation to climate variability and change in Zambia and Western Africa. Currently, he is also working on the role of agricultural systems (Push-Pull technology) for mitigating climate variability and change in East Africa as well as on the effects of forest policies in the Nordic countries for the carbon stocks and the biodiversity in forest ecosystems. In his scientific work he use both various types of observational data and simulations with climate models as well as simulations with a terrestrial ecosystem model recently.
