The University of Aberdeen is a premier teaching and research University in the UK established in 1495. The work on the project will be carried out in the Institute of Biological & Environmental Sciences (IBES), which was ranked 1st in the UK in Unit of Assessment 6 (Agriculture, Veterinary and Food Sciences) in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF2014). Research within the Institute covers the whole spectrum of biology from microbes to vertebrates, from molecular to global scales. The Environmental Modelling group holds the most research funding in IBES (over 7 MEuro in current active funding) and has a global reputation in the field of modelling soil greenhouse gas fluxes and soil C & N cycling. Team members chair & serve on national & international advisory panels on these issues. The team works in a dedicated computer modelling laboratory, consisting of a network of 64-bit, multi-parallel processor servers & two large networked multi-parallel processor servers.
