Welcome to LUCCI!
Lund University Centre
for studies of Carbon Cycle and Climate Interactions
LUCCI is a research centre at Lund University devoted to studies of the carbon cycle and how it interacts with the climate system. The centre involves about 120 researchers from five Lund university departments: Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, Geology,Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

LUCCI R3i visit to MAX-IV
A group from LUCCI R3I visited MAX-IV
The R3i group organised an excursion to the MAX IV lab in the beginning of the summer 2015, where they had a giuded tour about the new and supermodern research facility in Lund. MAX-lab is a national electron accelerator laboratory for synchrotron radiation research, nuclear physics and accelerator physics. MAX-lab is now to be extended with MAX IV that will be 100 times more efficient than any existing comparable synchrotron radiation facility in the world.
The MAX IV lab is now in place for employees to make the final installation and startup the accelerator, and the lab will be inaugurated officially in June 2016. The MAX-IV will be able to recieve about 2500 scientits from all over the world. It can be used in a wide range of research fields, for example chemistry, geology, engineering, biology, medicin and nanotechnology.

LUCCI authors in new BACC book
LUCCI researchers Anneli Poska and Anne Birgitte Nielsen are contributing authors in the recently released "Second Assessment of Climate Change for the Baltic Sea Basin" (BACC II, Springer, 2015). This book follows up, revises and adds to the 2008 edition of the BACC book.
Anne Brigitte and Anneli are contributing to the chapter Causes of Regional Change - Land Cover, that deals with the effects of anthro- pogenic land-cover change (ALCC) on past climate on timescales from decades to millenia. More, as a tool that may help to understanding important processes involved in land cover climate interactions, the chapter reviews studies on potential climate-induced landcover change (CLCC) and its feedback on climate.
Participants in the book project are meteorologists, hydrologists, oceanographers and biologists.
Magazine Naturvetaren is writing about Anton Hansson's research about old growth forests at the bottom of the sea on the coast of Scania.
