GPP researchers win Kepler Prize for mathematical model for land use

Two GPP researchers are among the authors of the 2022 Johannes Kepler Prize-winning work: Arthur Nicolaus Fendrich and Alberto Barretto, who wrote in partnership with Vinícius Guidotti de Faria, Fernanda de Bastiani, Karis Tenneson, Luis Fernando Guedes Pinto and the former coordinator from GPP Gerd Sparovek.

The winning article, entitled “Disclosing contrasting scenarios for future land cover in Brazil: results from a high-resolution spatiotemporal model“, was published in Science of the Total Environment and deals with a predictive mathematical model for land use in Brazil.

The award-winning work stood out among thirty works submitted, which include articles published from 2017 to 2021 in journals of international circulation and with an editorial board of recognized competence, dedicated to topics that require strong interaction between Mathematics and another branch of scientific knowledge.

The award is promoted by the Brazilian Society of Applied and Computational Mathematics (SBMAC), with the aim of encouraging national scientific production with multidisciplinary characteristics.
