B21E:
New Mechanisms, Feedbacks, and Approaches for Improving Predictions of the Global Carbon Cycle in Earth System Models I Posters


Session ID#: 10314

Session Description:
Predictions of future atmospheric CO2 concentrations are influenced by global carbon and nutrient cycles, climate interactions, and feedbacks. Relevant processes operate at different spatial and temporal scales, vary across marine and terrestrial ecosystems and remain uncertain. Moreover, feedbacks may be altered by anthropogenic disturbance agents, including tropospheric O3, acceleration of the N and H2O cycles, eutrophication, and land cover/use changes. This session focuses on integrated understanding of feedback mechanisms, structure and function of critical and vulnerable ecosystems, human activities, and approaches for evaluating and benchmarking Earth System Models.
