B24D:
Reducing Uuncertainty in Terrestrial Feedbacks to Climate Change through Global Change Experiments and Models II


Session ID#: 9175

Session Description:
Terrestrial feedbacks to climate change account for a large portion of the uncertainty in climate change projections. This uncertainty has many sources, including uncertainty surrounding changes in soil carbon turnover rates, nutrient limitation of CO2 fertilization, acclimation of warming responses, changes in species composition and disturbance regimes, and more. Many ecosystem experiments are being conducted to better constrain these sources of uncertainty, and model exercises are being conducted to identify which sources of uncertainty might be most important, and most easily constrained.

Submissions to this session are invited from individuals conducting experimental manipulations, model simulations, or model-experiment intercomparisons that seek to reduce uncertainty in terrestrial ecosystem feedbacks to climate change.
