Contributions of soil moisture interactions to climate change in the tropics in the GLACE-CMIP5 experiment

Contributions of changes in soil moisture to the projected climate change in the tropics at the end of the twenty first century are quantified using the simulations from five different global climate models, which contributed to the GLACE–CMIP5 …

Recent trends and drivers of regional sources and sinks of carbon dioxide.

The land and ocean absorb on average just over half of the anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year. These CO2 "sinks" are modulated by climate change and variability. Here we use a suite of nine dynamic global vegetation …

Recent changes in the global and regional carbon cycle: analysis of first-order diagnostics

We analyse global and regional changes in CO2
fluxes using two simple models, an airborne fraction of anthropogenic
emissions and a linear relationship with CO2
concentrations. We show that both models are able to fit the
non-anthropogenic …

Communication and use of climate scenarios for climate change adaptation in Finland, Sweden and Norway

This paper assesses the communication and the use of climate scenarios at the science–science and science–policy interface in Finland, Sweden and Norway. It is based on document analysis and stakeholder questionnaires. The questionnaires targeted …

Characterising forest owners through their objectives, attributes and management strategies

Changes in forest land use and management arise from the decisions of individual forest owners. To gain a better understanding of forest owner decision-making and its implications for forest land-use change, we develop a forest owner functional …

Forest management facing climate change - an ecosystem model analysis of adaptation strategies

To adapt to climate change, forest managers request information on management options for obtaining environmental, societal and economic goals. In this study, we assess the potential of adaptive forest management to influence the productivity and …

Benchmarking the seasonal cycle of CO2 fluxes simulated by terrestrial ecosystem models

We evaluated the seasonality of CO2 fluxes simulated by nine terrestrial ecosystem models of the TRENDY project against (1) the seasonal cycle of gross primary production (GPP) and net ecosystem exchange (NEE) measured at flux tower sites over …

A new regional climate model operating at the meso-gamma scale; performance over Europe

There are well-known difficulties to run numerical weather prediction (NWP) and climate models at resolutions traditionally referred to as ‘grey-zone’ (~3–8 km) where deep convection is neither completely resolved by the model dynamics nor …

Overcoming social barriers to learning and engagement with climate change adaptation: experiences with Swedish forestry stakeholders

Climate change is expected to significantly affect forestry in the coming decades. Thus, it is important to raise awareness of climate-related risks – and opportunities – among forest stakeholders, and engage them in adaptation. However, many social …
