Dr Jed Kaplan

Jackson Senior Research Fellow in Land Use and Environmental Change


Jed O. Kaplan is an expert on the response of global vegetation to climate changes and the potential feedbacks between the Earth’s land surface and the climate system.

Jed's research encompasses the traditional disciplines of earth sciences, geography, atmospheric chemistry, meteorology, soil science, hydrology, plant ecology and physiology, and computer science. The focus of his work is on the role of the Earth’s land surface in the climate system. By studying the behavior of the land surface, Jed aim to understand the potential for biophysical and biogeochemical feedbacks between land and atmosphere in the Earth system.
