Understanding climate
for the benefit of society

Christoph Heinze

Christoph Heinze is a biogeochemical ocean modeller with 30 years experience in the field. He has specialized in global three-dimensional modelling of marine biogeochemical cycles. His specific research interests are devoted to feedback processes between climate and biogeochemical cycles, the understanding, interpretation, and simulation of the marine sedimentary paleo-climate archive, and the quantification of the global carbon cycle.
