Dr. Batnyambuu Dashpurev

postdoctoral researcher

Short bio:

I am an experienced Postdoctoral Researcher with expertise in environmental impact assessment, environmental monitoring, GIS, remote sensing, data analysis, and grassland ecology. My research focuses on investigating the effects of climate change and management on grassland ecosystems and the impact of grassland management on soil carbon storage. Additionally, I am particularly interested in characterizing vegetation in grasslands and identifying the spatial, temporal, and magnitude of disturbances using remote sensing techniques.

Current working project:

SUSALPS – Sustainable use of alpine and pre-alpine grassland soils in a changing climate

CARBOGRASS – Impact of grassland management on soil carbon storage

Previous project involvement at LMU Munich:

MORE STEP – Mobility at risk: Sustaining the Mongolian Steppe Ecosystem
