Stable Isotopes in Biospheric-Atmospheric-Earth System Research SIBAE (closed)


Predicting impacts of global change on the Earth system requires detailed understanding of interactions between biota and biogeochemical processes in different environments and management regimes. Stable isotopes are a powerful tool for studying such interactions in natural and managed ecosystems, offering insights beyond classical methodologies.

COST Action ES0806 SIBAE

As integrative, coordinated European platform for the use of stable isotopes in biosphere-atmosphere-Earth system studies, COST Action ES0806 SIBAE aimed to:

  1. synthesize existing isolated stable isotope experiments on carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and water cycles to identify innovative process- and system-oriented research areas;
  2. assess current state-of-the-art models to improve process representation and to better link experimental and modelling communities;
  3. benchmark and advance innovative cutting-edge technologies for stable isotope analysis to stimulate interdisciplinary research; and
  4. train early-stage researchers from diverse disciplines.
