Join us for this webinar series that aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. In this installment, experts will delve into the critical tipping points in soil erosion and their implications, particularly in the regions of the Global South where the impacts are currently most pronounced.

The Tipping points discussion series supports efforts to increase consistency in the treatment of tipping elements in the scientific community, develop a research agenda, and design joint experiments and ideas for a Tipping Element Model Intercomparison Project (TipMip). It is a joint activity of the Analysis, Integration, and Modeling of the Earth System (AIMES) global research project of Future Earth, the Earth Commission Working Group 1 Earth and Human Systems Intercomparison Modelling Project (EHSMIP) under the Global Commons Alliance, and the Safe Landing Climates Light House Activity of World Climate Research Program (WCRP). IIASA co-hosts the scientific secretariat of Working Group 1 of the Earth Commission and is one of the organizers of these events.

This webinar will include presentations on:

  • Global inequalities and tipping points in soil erosion by Amaury Frankl (Ghent University)
  • Human impacts on soils: Avoiding tipping points and restoring soil ecosystem services by Nikolaos Nikolaidis (Technical University of Crete) 
  • Q&A/ Discussion 

The session will be moderated by Amandine Erktan (IRD, UMR Eco&Sols, Montpellier).
