Toby Richard Marthews

I am an Environmental Scientist with a particular interest in the effects of Climate Change on ecosystems. I have two special focuses:
(1) Global inundation and wetland environments: these areas currently account for 1/3rd of global emissions of the greenhouse gas methane and this may rise to >50% under climate change
(2) Impacts of extreme climatic events, particularly large-scale droughts and floods, which account for the greatest loss of life and property in the contemporary world.
Through my projects, I am involved with the theory and development of land surface models (LSMs), working collaboratively with groups in the UK, India, Southern Africa, Norway, US, Panama and elsewhere. Mostly, I use the UK model JULES, for which I am a code developer.
