AIMES — Analysis, Integration and Modelling of the Earth System
AIMES is an Earth System synthesis and integration project. It builds on the foundation of the Global Analysis, Integration and Modelling (GAIM) task force. AIMES focusses on:
- The functioning of global biogeochemical cycles, including interactions and feedbacks with the physical climate system;
- The interplay between human activities and biogeochemical cycles, both in the past and into the future;
- How the biogeochemical cycles function on different time scales.
AIMES was formerly a core project of IGBP (International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme).
