Researcher works to improve climate change predictions
LSU scientist Cheryl Harrison coordinated a team of 23 international researchers from the United States, Australia, Europe and Canada who produced a landmark paper on marine climate change impact projections.
Harrison is Assistant Professor in the Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences at LSU.
The study suggests that while models of marine ecosystems are the key tools used to understand how climate change might impact food webs and fisheries in the future, how these models represent the key processes that determine the response. from ecosystem to climate change differ considerably.
