Tropical mountain rainforests and dry forests in southern Ecuador are threatened by climate and land use changes. The aim is to analyse the reaction of these ecosystems on climate and land use changes using a process based model and to develop policy recommendations. For this purpose, the Land Surface Model "HUMBOL-TD", which is currently being developed in the project, will be used. The working group of the JLU Gießen is in charge of the representation of hydrological processes in this model and uses stable isotopes of water in particular.
